Five Nights of Fun!
Fourth Street Camp is a five day summer camp designed to give elementary students (children entering 3rd-6th grades after summer) the opportunity to explore their interests and learn more about God’s design for their lives.
Created by Immanuel Baptist Church, this free camp offers four areas of interest that students can choose to explore throughout the week. Experts and professionals will coach students in either soccer, basketball, hip-hop dance, or watercolor, giving kids the chance to learn the fundamentals of their chosen activity.
Immanuel has partnered with their Fourth Street neighbor, Presentation Academy. The exceptional facilities at Presentation will bring students the best experience possible. Kids will learn the basics of hip-hop dance in Presentation’s state-of-the-art dance studio; bring watercolor imaginings to life in a fully-equipped art studio; practice basketball fundamentals in a regulation-size gym; and learn introductory soccer skills and strategies from a former British Soccer Camp and Kentucky Fire Juniors coach.

a note from immanuel’s children’s director
Welcome to Fourth Street Camp! I am the Children’s Director at Immanuel and mom of two 4th grade campers. I know it is important to know who your children will be with, so let me tell you a bit about myself.
I am a former JCPS 5th grade teacher and currently mentor 5th graders at Engelhard Elementary. When my children were younger, I wrote children’s books and visited local schools as an author. I presented reading workshops for educators and college students.
In my current role, I train our Sunday School teachers and camp leaders to teach with excellence and care. I oversee safety parameters for volunteers who interact with campers through an extensive application process. The process includes a background check, interview, a recommendation from a trusted source, and completion of child safety training. Our volunteers are kind, caring, and talented. I look forward to my own children learning from them this summer.
