Details of how the weekend went coming!

2017 Fun times at Explorers!

Ornament Making

At one of our meetings in October, the girls created unique Christmas ornaments, chocolate candies, and gift tags.  These were used as thank yous to anyone who made a donation to support the Explorers Program during the Hampton United Church Christmas Craft and Bake Sale on Nov. 4, 2017.

Thank you to all those who offered us their support!


Night Walk

Another meeting in November we met at Kim’s home and went for a night walk, unfortunately, it was a cloudy night so we couldn’t see the stars, but we still thoroughly enjoyed the outing, listening for the different night sounds, and singing as we walked back to our starting point.

Night of Light

Church Sleepover with a Blacklight Theme – great fun for all involved!

Everyone was invited to come dressed in white and neon colours. The girls began the evening by having their nails painted in neon colours at the nail polish station.  This was followed by a Books of the Bible Flashlight Scavenger Hunt. Next, it was mini-pizza time (thanks to the moms who created the pizza’s in the kitchen while we were playing!)


Then we broke into four groups and hit the blacklight stations: Plinko, Bowling, Mini Putt, and painting. During the event, the children received a glow in the dark necklace, bracelet, glow stick, neon headband, happy face glow pin, and a Night of Ligh 2017 T-Shirt.

Later we sat around our indoor (fake) campfire and sang campfire songs and ate ‘smores (thanks again to the moms who prepared the ‘smores for us).

Lastly we set about blowing up everyone’s air mattresses and taking turns having our picture taken in front of the blacklight photo booth backdrop. We finally settled in for the night and the next morning while waiting for a breakfast of pancakes and fruit they decorated the breakfast tablecloth using gel pens. After breakfast, everyone received a glow-in-the-dark cannister of slime, to their immense pleasure, and the slimy fun continued until parents arrived!

Collecting for the Christmas Food Hampers

At the November 27th meeting the girls broke into three groups and visited as many houses, in Hampton, as our time allowed, collecting food itmes for the Hampton U.C. Christmas Food Hampers.  Thanks to all in who donated!  We collected a total of 218 food items plus $40 cash!
