KidShine day camps are hosted by churches throughout the United States each summer, offering five days of performing arts fun for 3rd–8th graders. Activities include music, drama, dance, puppets, instruments and scenery painting, but the day camp is much more than that—it's an opportunity to see God working as kids come together to discover and share their creativity. MORE
KidShine's goal is to help kids discover new gifts, experience God’s love and be cared for, challenged and encouraged—when that happens, lives are changed. Our day camps, curriculum and musicals don't change lives because of what we do, but because of what God does. Kids are transformed as they discover the joy of using their gifts to honor God and bless others.
We want to support your ministry by offering fun, creative, relevant programs and materials that make kids laugh and get excited about growing in their faith. We know that giving children an opportunity to shine can truly be life changing. MORE
"A Scene, a Song and a Story" is KidShine's new curriculum series with original scenes and song parodies that will have your kids laughing, digging deeper in the Bible and coming back for more. Each series includes five creative, flexible lessons for 1st-6th graders which are ideal for use in summer Sunday School, midweek programs, VBS or outreach events. MORE
What makes a KidShine musical different? We write original scripts with lots of great parts for everyone—there are no "starring" roles so everyone gets a chance to shine. Every musical includes the latest Christian songs from popular artists such as Mandisa, Tenth Avenue North, tobyMac and Kari Jobe. Hilarious scenes and a powerful Christian message combine to create a performance the kids and audience will never forget. MORE
"The KidShine performing arts day camp was a blast!
The leaders were amazing and I loved how they found ways for every
person to be involved and truly shine in the final performance."
"We're excited about using drama and music in our Sunday School
and midweek programs—KidShine's 'A Scene, a Song and a Story' curriculum
is just what we've been looking for. Can't wait to get started!"
"KidShine's musicals are a delight—hilarious scenes, great content,
the latest Christian songs and plenty of fun parts for everyone."
