During the Vacation Bible Camp week, campers are grouped by grade level. They spend about two hours in the morning with our volunteer catechists in the cabins working on bible stories: reading, engaging in interpretative crafts, and applying the lessons to their daily lives. This year our emphasis is on caring for God’s earth and its people. Each morning there is a snack and a couple of short breaks. Before lunch the groups gather together to summarize the morning’s activities, and then head off for lunch at the picnic tables. After lunch, prepared by our kitchen crew, the afternoon activities begin. There are arts and crafts, swimming in the above ground pool (with a certified lifeguard), volleyball, tetherball, tug of war, the water slides (one big, and a couple of smaller ones), swings and slides, hikes on the trails, nature walks, bottle rockets, basketball and a few other activities. The activities are supervised by adult volunteers and high school students, and a nurse or EMT is on site during each day.
At the end of the week, on Friday evening, there is a cookout for all our campers and their families.
