Camping with Christ Vacation Bible School is Virtual and One of a Kind!

VBS is Going Virtual with an original program designed by OLL staff.

That’s Right! Our staff and some parishioners have created an original Camping with Christ Vacation Bible School that will be offered virtually this year! At the beginning of August, a link will be available at  This link will give full free access to our virtual VBS: “Camping With Christ”. It is a new twist on Vacation Bible School that helps all our children participate in the usual VBS fun safely from their own homes. 

What will this look like? “Camping with Christ” will be a self-paced virtual experience that families can use when it is best for them. It will include 5 modules (or main lessons). These would typically be the 5 days of the VBS week, but they can now be completed whenever your schedule permits. 

Here are the module themes: 

Module 1: Prepare for the Journey

Module 2: Walk by Faith

Module 3: Seek Your Savior

Module 4: Catch the Spirit

Module 5: Shine a Light

Each module will include “places” for children to visit, including Storytime Rock, Arts and Crafts Lodge, Field and Trails, Dining Hall, Song River and the Cabin. Each “place” will offer children a lesson or activity they can do that is related to the theme. What will each of these “places” include? Let’s take a look! 

Storytime Rock - Bible Stories and Videos 

Arts and Crafts Lodge - Coloring Pages and Step-by-Step Tutorials for Art Projects

Field and Trails - Outdoor Challenges and Activities

Dining Hall - Simple Campfire Recipes 

Song River - Sing-A-Longs and Music Videos 

Cabin - Community Sharing 

As you visit the different “places” your family will be able to see some familiar faces! A few staff members and parishioners have given of their time and talent to create videos for our children. And you get to join in the fun, too! The Cabin will be a place for sharing what your family is doing at home for “Camping with Christ”. You will be invited to share photos and videos of what you and your children create and do throughout this VBS experience. You can also connect with us about your VBS experience by using the hashtags: #CampingwithChrist  and #olleuclid on social media.
