Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd is excited to offer Compassion Camp: Be Loved. Be Kind. Be You. It's an adaptable at-home/virtual Vacation Bible School program that offers fun and learning for the whole family. The theme is compassion for others, ourselves, and the world. Each day has a Bible story, a new song, plus imagining, colouring, crafts and activities you can do together as a family.
Compassion Camp: Be Loved. Be Kind. Be You. is geared toward PreK-5th graders, but activities are adaptable for any age.
When does it happen?
Compassion Camp will be online from August 3 - August 31. Your family can participate whenever you would like.
How do I get my materials?
Once you register, you'll receive a digital package via email so you can organize the materials and print the activities at home. All the videos are online at https://www.lutheranchurchofthegoodshepherd.com/ministries/vacation-bible-school/pages/compassion-camp
Can I share VBS with my friends or my grandkids?
Yes, please do! Just remember that they do need to register to receive a packet. Doing so honours the copyright permissions that come with Compassion Camp.
How much time will my child need to be online?
That really depends on how much of the program you want to do. Each day's videos include a gathering, Bible story, song, movement, and sending, and these can be blended with activities you do at home. Compassion Camp also includes self-directed activities that require no screen time.
How much does it cost?
There is no cost to participate. You simply need to register!
