Summer Vacation Bible Camp
HERO CENTRAL: Discover Your Strength in God!
VBC 2017: July 17-21, 2017
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.
In 2015, we offered G-Force: God’s Love in Action. In 2016, we offered Surf Shack! Catch the Wave of God’s Amazing Love, and this year, it’s Hero Central: Discover Your Strength in God!

Our mission focus this year is how to help the homeless. We are asking for sample-size toiletries to give to homeless shelters and other service agencies like the Justa Center.
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 serve on a one-day local mission project/field trip for an additional fee ($5). This year, they will go pack meals at FMSC (Feed My Starving Children).
Every summer, we serve approximately 150-175 campers and need 50-60 volunteers working with our preschool-6th grade classes.
