Cedarville University to Host 2,500 at Junior Jam

by Public Relations Office

Cedarville, Ohio—Cedarville University will host approximately 2,500 people at its biannual Junior Jam event on Saturday, April 9. Guests are expected from Ohio, Indiana, Michigan, Kentucky, and West Virginia and will include roughly 2,000 third through sixth-graders and several hundred adult sponsors. This year`s theme is "The Junior Incredibles." Through games, videos, and lessons students will be challenged to be examples in speech, life, love, faith, and purity. Games include "Galactic Feud," a game show where contestants learn the importance of love from a super-hero family; "Choose or Lose Relay," a relay filled with crazy choices and interesting consequences; "Phone Frenzy," a new and improved version of the telephone game; "Labyrinth of Faith," a maze where trust is the only way to get out; and "Power Bracelets," a fun service project that gets everyone involved. Kristy Lester of Springfield sent her daughter, Marissa (age 10), to last fall`s Junior Jam. Lester shared, "The thing I like about Junior Jam is the fact that biblical themes are always incorporated into the games. The kids aren`t just coming for a day of fun; they are learning to apply biblical principles to life." Junior Jam also features workshops and training seminars for the adults accompanying the students. For a list of the workshops, visit www.cedarville.edu/departments/er/jrjam/workshops.cfm. Approximately 500 Cedarville University students will volunteer at Junior Jam by preparing events, serving lunch, and leading games and small groups. "I am always impressed with how many Cedarville students volunteer their time to help with these events," Lester added. Junior Jam`s opening rally begins at 10 a.m. in the University`s Dixon Ministry Center. Additional information is available at www.cedarville.edu/juniorjam.
