See you ON July 15-19, 2024
Join us this year in July at VBS for an exciting week of games, activities, crafts, and growth together! Our full-day camp is open to children from Kindergarten to Grade 6, and pre-schoolers will enjoy a half-day program.
This year we will be launching kids on a cosmic quest where they'll have a blast shining Jesus' light to the world. Through Jesus, we believe that kids can shine a light and be launched into a life of making a big impact on the world around them. Therefore, we believe that we should encourage kids to illuminate our world with the same hope that Jesus offers
