VBS Kids Camp is coming to Eastport Bible Church, and it’s coming soon! Not sure what this means for you? Well read on, dear friend, read on.
Every year, during the first full week of August (August 7th-11th of this year), we get the most amazing team together. These adult and student leaders are all dedicated to the same thing: Serving the kids in our community during a fun and full week of VBS Kids Camp.
VBS Kids Camp is for kids who completed Pre-K (must be 5 by December 1st, 2017) through 6th Grade of this past (current) school year. We meet up each day from 9:00am-12:00noon for a great skit, songs, games, crafts, a snack, a Bible lesson time and a closing time each day.
Oh, and it should be noted that by the time summer rolls around, our 6th Graders will actually be students who are going into 7th in the Fall. Speaking of the older kids, our program is extra fun because we take the 5th and 6th graders off site during our time so that they can enjoy games and pool time outdoors. We have a few great friends in the community that live close by that open up their homes each year. The older kids love this privilege and this give the younger ones the space they need to do their fun and activities at the church.
VBS Kids Camp is an incredible program. Yes, our goal is to give kids a time of fun and activities. But most of all, we want them to learn that they are loved by Jesus.
We teach them this through a fun and interactive skit time as well as during their lesson times. I believe that there is nothing greater you can do than to encourage a child to know that they are loved by God and created to do awesome things. When they learn this at a young age, it affects how they see themselves and the choices that they make as they grow older. A fun and interactive week at VBS Kids Camp will help them to accomplish this very thing.
And also as a bonus, we always end our week by sliming someone. It’s tradition and tied into our Change for Children program (we ask the kids to voluntarily bring in change throughout the week which is then donated to an orphanage in West Africa) and it is always, always a highlight.
So, a few things to know. VBS Kids Camp is totally free and open to all children, Pre-K through 6th Grade. This year our theme is “Passport to Peru” and it’s going to be amazing. Registration is quick and easy and online! It will literally take a few minutes to complete. You can register your child by going to: www.eastportbiblechurch.com and clicking on the VBS Kids Tab at the top of the page.
All this being said, remember to mark your calendars! VBS Kids Camp at Eastport Bible Church is coming up, August 7th through the 11th. Plan to join us and tell your friends, because we would love to have them join us as well!
PLEASE NOTE: Our online registration ends on July 21st this year. If you haven’t registered your child, please do by this date so we can accurately plan for our group this year. Thanks so much!
