VBS/Camps

Vacation Bible School!
We are going to take a brand new approach to VBS this summer that takes into consideration the health safety of both adults and children as well as the overall availability of campers and volunteers. Week-long attendance was becoming increasingly challenging for many families because of two-parent working households which have steadily increased over the last 5 years. This has also had an impact on available parent volunteers which VBS depends on. We hope this new model will work for families with working parents and kids who may be spending weekdays catching up academically. A detailed Email will be sent out to families within the eligible age group in the coming days with registration information. Sneak Peek: VBS will be held three Sunday afternoons on July 11, 18, 25. Parent support will be key so we hope you will consider joining us for this fun new way to offer a long-loved summer program!

Camp Tilikum News!
Camp Tilikum worked diligently last summer to provide an outdoor day camp experience for kids that included most of the great activities the camp has to offer while putting in place safety guidelines for the health and well-being of all campers and staff. They are continuing that effort for this summer’s program! Registration is open and underway using their online registration link here https://camptilikum.org/summer-camps/

It’s important to know that Tilikum has continued to suspend bus service to and from camp and adult volunteers are not permitted this summer. Instead, Tilikum has hired additional camp staff to ensure the safe supervision of campers while keeping multi-person exposure to a minimum. We do have families at Christ Church who have begun to register their kids for the week of August 2-6. If you would like to register for that week as well or another week that works for your schedule, please do! Their spaces are more limited this summer so in order to get your preferred week, register soon. If you send an email to scoffman@ccparish.org with the week you registered, I will connect families together based on their registered week.
