Congregational day camp
Camp Phillip--Congregational day camp

Is your congregation's VBS an effective outreach tool?

From the opening to the closing program, we will bring all the fun of summer camp to your church and provide a rich setting in which important lessons about God can be communicated to children in grades K-6!  Two college-age staff and two-three junior staff (trained high school volunteers) together with a group of church volunteers will present one main idea a day in different activity areas, such as adventure, brain drain, crafts, games, snacks and storytime.  Volunteers will work either in the activity areas where they possess particular passion and gifts or as counselors to lead their "cabin" from one area to another.

The schedule is loaded with opportunities for growth!
