FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions) HOW CAN PARENTS AND TEENS HELP WITH KIDSGAMES? There are a variety of ways to serve at KidsGames and help make this a great week for for the kids! Our biggest need is Guides (small group leaders) and Assistant Coaches. Review the volunteer section on the child registration form to indicate your availability to help. It’s a wonderful opportunity to experience the fun of KidsGames with your child and to make friends with other parents! This is also a great opportunity for teens to earn their community service hours! If you’d like to donate money to help a kid come to KidsGames, you can make a donation at the KidsGames booth during weekend services or on our website (click on KidsGames > Scholarship Donations).  

 

 

WHAT CAN MY YOUNGER CHILD DO WHILE I VOLUNTEER? Childcare will be provided at no charge for children (ages 3 & under) for volunteers ONLY. (You must register your child/children that need childcare when you register yourself).

WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS A PEANUT ALLERGY? KidsGames is committed to having a peanut-free campus. Parents are welcome to send a snack with their child if the child has food allergies and it is of concern. Please list all allergies on your child’s registration form.  

WHAT IF I HAVE A FINANCIAL HARDSHIP? NCCC would like for all children who desire to participate in KidsGames to have that opportunity. If you have a financial hardship, please email Miki Montoya @ mikim@northcoastcalvary.org. Scholarships are limited to only 1 week so register early. You will be emailed a form to fill out and then someone will contact you to discuss more in detail.  (DO NOT register your child online if you are requesting a scholarship until you have been given further instructions).

MY KINDERGARTNER REALLY WANTS TO BE WITH HIS 1ST GRADE BROTHER? CAN I DO THAT? Unfortunately, no. We have set up each program to be age-appropriate with activities and lessons geared towards the designated age group. Placing younger children in older groups changes the makeup of the entire group. We encourage parents to think of KidsGames as an opportunity for their young children to make new friends and grow in their comfort of new situations.  

WHAT IS THE CLOSING CELEBRATION? Each year we like to close KidsGames with a celebration spotlighting the events of the week. This is a great opportunity to meet some of your child’s new friends and get a taste of what they’ve done each day. The Closing Celebration will begin at NCCC at 12:15pm on Friday. Lunch will be available (tickets must be purchased during the week of KidsGames). Don’t miss it!  

HOW MANY ELECTIVES DOES MY 1ST-3RD/4TH-6TH GRADE CHILD CHOOSE? Good question! He/She will participate in only one elective. We ask that you choose two electives because some electives fill up and we need to move on to the next choice. Please list 2 different choices when registering. Please check w/ your child to make sure you register them for the elective of their choice (it CAN NOT be changed later.)

MY CHILD HAS INVITED A FRIEND, AND THEY WANT TO BE TOGETHER. WHAT DO I DO? We understand this and try to honor it whenever possible! Here’s how you can help.

    4’s/Kindergarten Program– Boys and Girls are mixed at this age, and no elective is chosen. Simply communicate with your child’s friend to make sure both children are requesting each other and are listing each other on their registration forms.

    1st-3rd & 4th-6th Grade Program- If your 1st-3rd or 4th-6th grade child would like to be with a friend, please make sure they are the same gender and signing up for the SAME elective. Also, requests must be mutual. Friends need to write each others’ names on their registration forms.  

HOW CAN I GET INVOLVED? There are several amazing opportunities to help. You can sign up to help when registering your child. Go to the Volunteer Registration tab above for more information.
