I am a former Awana Boy. I don't remember much about it because I wasn't
in that long.
We had a large group of kids, I must have been about 12 at the time. A
friend of mine recruited me, it was sponsored by a Baptist church. That
was about 1966 or so. Although I'm Lutheran I went because they played
sports games, etc. in addition to memorizing Bible verses. There were
different awards you could earn. It was similar to Scouting in some
regards except without the outdoor emphasis.
I quit Awanas but remained in Scouting. I believe there is still an
active Awanas group in town at the same church.
