By scheduling regular educational activities for your child, you can avoid summer learning loss.

Spark Your Child’s Faith In The Summer

The Summer Study

The Summer Study is an 8 unit Bible study from June to August where children ages 5-18 explore and memorize Scripture in a fun and educational way. With your registration you receive:

The Discovery Journal

At the heart of the Summer Study is the Discovery Journal, an inductive study that launches children on a journey through the Scriptures. The study teaches participants to explore the Bible using study tools and methods such as keywords, cross-references, background, personal application, and original language word studies. Each participant will gain deeper knowledge of the Bible through reading and memorization.

Christian Community

Join a host group or the private social community with other registered participants where you can study Scripture and encourage each other during the Summer Study. Each group has a leader, called a host, who facilitates meetings for registered participants to practice memory verses, play games, and have community with like-minded friends.

An Opportunity to Win $135,000

At the National Bible Bee Competition, the top 120 participants in three age divisions compete for over $135,000 in prize money in a live head-to-head competition.
