Stand Beside Her Celebration
October 22, 2017
Thank you to FedEx for sponsoring the 2nd annual Stand Beside Her Celebration at For the Kingdom Camp! We had over 200 girls attend this fun and FREE event that included stations such as “Kind Words Sensory Lesson” and “How to be a Great Leader.” The celebration also provided activities focused on STEM, physical fitness, and pedestrian safety. Girls even had a chance to climb a rock wall, hop on the human swing, rock out to a live DJ, and enjoy a pizza party!
