What is Hero Academy?
Hero Academy is 3 days of intense hero training and team-building games, along with a passionate chase after God. Kids ages 6-11 years old come together to learn, play, make friends, and meet with God. Hero Academy focuses on what it means to be a true hero and how children can become heroes of the faith. The camp is a ministry sponsored by thpKids Children’s Ministry at the Healing Place in Shreveport, Louisiana.
What To Expect?
The camp runs from 8AM – 5:30 PM each day with games and activities planned throughout the day. Parents are expected to drop off their children, however, parents that choose to stay will need to consult the Camp Pastor. Lunch will be provided along with snacks and refreshments. Breakfast is not provided by the camp. Parents should provide breakfast for their children before they arrive. If it is necessary for a child to eat at an odd time due to medical reasons, a parent or guardian will need to speak with the Camp Pastor. Each camper will be a part of a team with other kids and will participate in teams and individual challenges. Hero Academy is also a mission trip opportunity for teens from THP Student Ministries who love God and love kids. The teens lead campers as their teams compete against one another to become camp heroes.
What To Bring?
All kids will need to bring a towel and a change of clothes on Wednesday for water games. Soap, shampoo, towels, and wash cloths will be needed if your child needs to take a shower after the water games. Medications that need to be taken during the day must be turned in Monday during registration. Medications will only be administered by the camp First Aid staff members.
Modest shorts are fine for both daily activities and services. Girls will need to wear a bathing suit under their clothes for the water games. Boys must wear swim shorts and shirts for the water games. Dry clothes and shoes must be worn for the evening services.
What Does it Cost?
The cost of the camp is $10 dollars per child in advance or $15 at the door. This cost covers lunch, dinner, and all snacks and drinks during camp hours. Through generous gifts and donations provided by people all over the nation have helped us keep the cost of the camp very low.
