BREAD OF LIFE VBS 2013
Family Pizza Night: Thurs. June 27 6:00-8:00 PM
It is time once again for the best week of the year! This year your children will learn something new each day about God’s love for them. We will explore one Bible story about “Bread” each day and apply that story at each of the following stations: Bible Story, Games, Snacks, Drama and Crafts. We begin and end each day at camp in a large group format led by Father Jim Hamilton. Children are grouped in crews of +5 children with one or two leader(s). VBS includes: camp, t-shirt, snacks, crafts and music CD. We want to make VBS accessible to all, therefore VBS is free of charge. Donations to help offset the cost of the program would be greatly appreciated.
Children are most welcome at Vacation Bible School. Children under 4 years of age can participate with a parent. Children ages 4 and older can register as independent campers. Children in 5th and 6th grade can participate as junior crew leaders. Children in 7th grade and older have many opportunities to serve as volunteers. All volunteers need to complete the VOLUNTEER form on our website and return it to me.
Would your child benefit from one-on-one care during Vacation Bible school? Please indicate on your registration form if you desire your child to partner with a caring individual to make their VBS experience more enjoyable.
VBS Outreach Mission
Children at VBS can help raise “dough” to send to the Episcopal Relief and Development organizations Disaster Relief program that provides lifesaving necessities in times of great need. VBS kids can raise money by their own design (ex., lemonade stand, dog walking, etc.). Each day at VBS during our large group worship, kids that bring in money will be called forward and introduced and then will be given a loaf of bread to add to our pantry up on stage. Our part as parents and leaders is to encourage the children to do this and to let them design and implement the project. Cash or checks made payable to Episcopal Relief and Development.
Afternoon Day Camp (ADC)
ADC is a wonderful opportunity to extend the fun at camp into the afternoon. Each day includes a nutritious lunch, a snack, crafts and walking day trips to various pre-planned excursions including the Cranbrook Science Institute, Natatorium and Gardens. Available Monday – Friday, from noon – 5:30PM for children that have completed kindergarten through sixth grade. You may select to participate in one or more days at ADC. $40 per day.
