Hollis Crossings Summer Day Camp
Session 1 – June 10-14 Session 2 – July 8-12
Hollis Crossings Summer Day Camp is a fun, active and faith-filled week during the summer for children grades K-5. During the week, kids run, play, jump, explore the outdoors and make new friends…while experiencing God’s love for all. Hollis receives both staff and programs from Camp Tomah Shinga, an accredited camp with Lutheran Outdoor Ministries.
Fifty percent of our campers each year are children who would otherwise not have a camp experience. Through generous scholarships from Atonement Lutheran, Salem Lutheran, and Trinity Lutheran churches and many individuals, about 20-25 children will have a camp experience this year. If you would like to apply for a scholarship please contact the Hollis office. Past organizations that have benefited from the scholarship program are ReStart, Catholic Charities (International Refugee Program), LUMA, Metro Lutheran Ministry, and Rosedale Development Association.

Students will be lodged at Hollis for the week and each day will have the opportunity to serve in a different part of our Kansas City community. The program is open to high school students in 9-12th grade and is limited to 12 students.
The cost is $405 (includes accommodations for the week and transport).
Hollis Brickworks: A Kid-Friendly, Family-Focused Service Program
June 5, 10am-12pm
July 7, 1-3pm
August 7, 10am-12pm
During the summer of 2018, we introduced BrickWorks to the Hollis community. We are partnering with the THE GIVING BRICK, a Kansas City based non-profit that collects used LEGO bricks, repackages sets, and gives them children served by CASA of Jackson County. Throughout the summer, families joined us at Hollis to experience the joy of working together as a community to serve others. During our BrickWorks service hours, we sort through donated LEGO bricks and break apart already assembled LEGO pieces. Because the events were met with such enthusiasm, we are continuing the program and will be introducing more BrickWorks dates throughout the year. All attendees are welcome to bring sack lunches, and explore the trails and hills of Hollis, play a game of GAGA ball, or sand volleyball before or after the service event.
