Vacation Bible Camp is a fun, half-day camp for children ages 3 (by 9-1-17 and potty-trained) through entering 6th grade held for a week in July every year. The theme changes annually, but always includes powerful Bible stories, impactful music, fun craft and science activities, recreation, and a mission project to benefit organizations and people in need. Older elementary children take an in-town mission trip on Thursday to FMSC (Feed My Starving Children). Visit fmsc.org to see the impact of this outreach across the world and read about PVUMC’s monthly packing opportunities for families.
The highlight of the week is the Family Night where we hear the children sing, families make a faith craft together, and we share highlights from the week, as we share ice cream together.
This year’s theme is Hero Central! Discover Your Strength in God, July 17-21, 2017, 9 am – 12 noon.
