North Way Christian Community Church in Pittsburgh, PA

KidzGiG

Our summer camp experience partners your child (preschool through 5th grade based on 2016-2017 school year) with adult and student (6th through 12th grade based on 2016-2017 school year) leaders who guide them in a fun and safe environment filled with age-appropriate games, music, activities and awesome surprises. KidzGiG stands for kids growing in God and that’s exactly what we hope happens during one of summer’s best weeks at North Way.
