Vacation Bible Camp is a fun, half-day camp for children ages 3 (by September 1 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, special visitors, recreation, and a mission project to benefit organizations and people in need.

Our mission focus this year is UMOM. We’ll help families at UMOM New Day Centers receive kitchen supplies and bath towels as they start their new lives in new homes.
Past VBC missions have included Heifer International, UMOM – United Methodist Outreach Ministries – New Day Centers (homeless shelter), Helping Hands for Single Moms, Camp Mingus, UMCOR (United Methodist Committee on Relief) disaster support, and Imagine No Malaria. In 2015, we asked our campers to collect shoes and money in support of Soles4Souls, and gathered 640 pairs!
Fifth and sixth graders follow a program designed specifically for tweens. They also serve on a one-day local mission project/field trip for an additional fee.
In 2015, we had nearly 175 campers and 60 volunteers working with our preschool-6th grade classes.
