If they wrote a letter home from Vacation Bible School this year, it would look something like this:
Dear Mom and Dad,
I am having a great time at Camp Catholic this year! We are having a lot of fun each day we are here! Every day we learn a song and hear a story from the Bible! We also get to learn about a new saint that is the patron of nature as well as some things about the Church. We get to have fun playing games, and fun eating snacks such as smores, ants on a log and campfire pretzels! We also get to make many crafts including snow globes, lanterns, telescopes and fishing poles! We also were able to participate in a service project for the prison ministry team! We earn badges every day that show we are following in the footsteps of Christ! The best part is being with my friends and learning more about God! Wish you were here!
Our third annual Vacation Bible School took place July 7-10. This year we had fifty campers who joined us for this four day camp. The campers ranged in age from 3 years old to 10 years old and we were blessed once again this year to have many youth helpers. We were also once again blessed by the generosity of the parish community in helping to provide supplies for Camp Catholic. It is truly amazing when you see so many young people together in one place celebrating their faith together! We would like to again thank the parish community for their continued support of this program!
Thank you also especially to all of our adult and young adult helpers! Thank you to Jessica Golding, Adam Hefflin, Audrey Ralph, Diane Steart, Beth Deville, Marie McGinty, Karen McNeal, Fran Leitenberger, Heather Deel, Jennifer and Greg Henderson, Marlana Rose, Audrey Ralph, Makayla Luther, Chris Baldasare, Alana Ralph, Jaya Das, Alexis Winters, Emily Raff, Kayli Ralph, Matthew Kingseed, Jaya Das, Allura Ward, Charles Selser.
We hope to see more of you at VBS next year!
