What is Rainforest Explorers VBC? At Rainforest Explorers VBC, children will learn that Jesus leads the way! They’ll look into the Bible, God’s Holy Word, and explore Bible accounts where God points us to our Savior, His Son, Jesus. He treasures us, and He is our treasure! He leads the way to eternal life with Him!
This year we have an exciting opportunity for your child(ren)! We are offering a one-full day VBC out at Camp Fire Minnesota Camp Bluewater. Lunch and snacks will be provided.
We will have a COVID-19 Preparedness Plan in place while at camp. Your child(ren) will need to be screened at check-in. Everyone in the car will be screened and if one person does not pass the screening, we will ask the entire car to leave. The registered child(ren) will still receive their bag of crafts and activities. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but we need to keep the people that attend healthy.
This camp is for ages 4-12. The children will be assigned to a group of no more than 12 including the counselor and junior counselors. The group will do all of the activities together and will not intermingle between other groups.
If your child is three and can handle an all day event, they are welcome to join us. We know how tired little ones can get and we are just not equipped for nap time. We would look at the possibility of starting the three year olds in the afternoon, so they can join us for part of the day. Please indicate this request on the registration form.
You are invited to join us for a picnic after Vacation Bible Camp at 5:00 on August 12th. Since we are limited on the number of people we can have on site, please RSVP by clicking the link below. Thank you!
Mission: Papua New Guinea is an outreach project that sends books about God’s love to kids in Papua New Guinea. This project focuses on reaching children and families there who have not heard the Gospel or do not have any books about Jesus.
By getting your students involved in this project, you will teach them—and the kids they help us serve—that God values all people regardless of race, ethnicity, or social status. You will teach that God knows and loves everyone in this big, big world and He will never forget them.
Papua New Guinea is a project of Concordia Gospel Outreach, the charity of
Concordia Publishing House. CGO sends free Bibles, Bible story books, and teaching
materials to individuals and organizations who are struggling to connect people
with the Gospel. Since 2011, CGO has touched more than 950,000 lives in more than
40 countries including the US.
