Every year, the first full week in August is reserved for VBS Kids Camp at Eastport Bible Church.
Our church gathers an incredible group of adult leaders and teens helpers.
And we open our doors to the amazing kids in our community, and every year, it’s awesome.
This year was particularly awesome.
We had over 100 kids join us for VBS and every day these amazing kids learned truths about God and His great love for them.
The learned lots of fun songs.
And enjoyed a great Skit each day as well.
And in my mind, there is nothing greater than teaching our kids good things about God and the Bible and encouraging them to be awesome as well.
Fun fact, these sweet babies came to VBS Kids Camp a few years ago with their beautiful mamas… Their families started coming to Eastport Bible Church…
And this year they got to officially attend VBS for the first time.
In addition to our opening time, the kids who came to VBS got to enjoy lots of other awesome activities. A few favorite each year, would be the pool time for the 6th and 7th graders.
As well as game time and snack time back at the church for the younger kids.
Yes, VBS Kids Camp was a great success this year and we are so thankful to all of the students who joined us for the week. A final highlight is that each year, we ask our kids to bring in their coins and change to help an orphanage in Burkina Faso, West Africa. Years ago our church partnered with Kayas Kids to help make a difference. To help motivate our students and add some fun, we divide the kids into teams and pick someone to slime each year and this year we picked a boys team and a girls team.
All of the kids did an amazing job bringing in their change and almost filling up two huge 5 gallon buckets with coins. The girls team ended up bringing in the most change…
And were slimed at the end of the week.
They were good sports, considering the slime was extra gross this year, and their efforts were well worth it… because in total, our VBS Kids Camp brought in $2008.00 in coins and every single one will go to Kaya’s Kids to help the orphans. If your child attended our VBS and you gave them money, we thank you from the bottom of our hearts!
And that sums up our amazing week of VBS Kids Camp at Eastport Bible Church.
