Overview

Pittman Park Welcome to the Family VBS Camp June 13-17 2022, 9-noon

Join us for Pittman Park’s VBS Camp 2022!

Did you know the Bible features true stories about characters a lot like the characters in Encanto? Did you know Christians are part of a family even more amazing than the Madrigals of Encanto?

At Welcome to the Family VBS camp, we’ll learn about God while we enjoy scenes and songs from one of the year’s best movies!

It’s all happening June 13-17, 2022 from 9 a.m. to noon.

See what great love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

1 John 3:1

What is it?

At VBS camp, children will start out in a large group where they will enjoy an interactive presentation of music and story that ends with snack time outside. Small groups will cycle through Art, Games, Bible and Culture stations before gathering back for another large group presentation to close out each day. 

Who is it for?

VBS Camp is for children entering Kindergarten through 5th grade. VBS stands for Vacation Bible School, so this is the place for kids who want to know more about what the Bible says.

It’s also for adults who want to volunteer for the team that makes VBS a fun, safe, and meaningful time for our campers.

NEW! Early drop-off and shuttle service

This year, we’re offering an early drop-off option, so caregivers can bring children to VBS Camp as early as 7:45 a.m. We are also offering a shuttle to Averitt Center facilities for children attending their afternoon day camps. VBS Camp is free, but these extra childcare services are $75 per child or $100 per family.
