VBS Day Camp Elements
Opening Worship - Each day begins with a time to introduce the daily theme through use of scripture, song, drama, puupets, prayer, and more.
Music - Music is an integral part of the Day Camp experience.
Bible Study - The Bible Study and week's theme will unfold in small groups led by Fortune Lake staff. Hands-on learning is stressed. See daily Bible stories below.
Large Group Games - Fun outdoor games appropriate to each age as well as some rainy day games in our back pocket, just in case!
Food - Morning Snacks and Lunch are provided FREE for all campers and volunteers.
Candle Fire/Sacred Silence - Day Camp is a very busy day for campers. These activities are intentional moments of rest and quiet. It may involve story time, review of the day, or singing slower camp songs.
Arts & Crafts - Campers make something each day that ties to the daily theme and provides them an opportunity to bring Day Camp home to their families.
B to the IBLE - B to the IBLE is a time of fun Bible activities. It is a mixture of games and Bible study. This is a chance to either reinforce the daily themes, or explore different Bible texts with campers. This is a great way to learn through play.
Closing Worship - Each day ends with a time to review the daily theme through use of scripture, song, prayer, drama, and camper participation.
FINAL SPECIAL EVENT - June 16 Friday Closing Worship for Campers, Families and Friends at Immanuel. Come celebrate the stories and songs we've learned throughout the week.
