What people are saying about Vacation Bible Camp at Our Lady of Peace:

"Can we just have OLP VBC all summer long?!! The kids and counselors are having so much fun and learning so much. Last night’s family night, was extra special! As a new OLP family that started during the pandemic, it was so great to meet school friends of the kids, their parents, new neighbors, and the amazing camp staff."

- Shannon

"This is a wonderful week for our children, an opportunity to see friends from school, to learn and play and pray together, to celebrate the blessings of our loving God, and to be outspokenly faithful. Watching our children sing and praise with each other and so many other children is so beautiful and a true gift."

- Katie

Why should I send my child to Vacation Bible Camp (VBC) at Our Lady of Peace?

Vacation Bible Camp is an opportunity for youth of all ages (PreK-12th grade) to spend a week together having fun, growing in their faith, and forming friendships

 

Our theme this year is Monumental: Celebrating God's Greatness.

 

Go off-road for a Monumental adventure through the colorful canyons and sunbaked trails of the southwest. Explore God’s awesomeness, and form a rock-solid faith for the road ahead.

What should I expect when my child comes to VBC at OLP?

At VBC, we want to help children into a closer relationship with the God who loves them, in ways that capture their hearts and imaginations.

 

We’ll play games, make crafts, tell stories, play make-believe, sing and dance, and so much more!

What does a typical day look like at VBC?

VBC is a busy day!

 

We start off each morning in a large group; getting an overview of our theme for the day, dancing and singing songs, and starting out with prayer.

 

Then we break into groups based on age so that campers can experience each station in a way that will most authentically connect to their lives.

 

Each day we’ll interact with stories about the Saints and stories from scripture, we’ll learn about God’s gifts for us in the Sacraments, we’ll play games, do crafts, sing songs, and have a tasty snack!

 

We close out our day by coming together once more and celebrating all of the good things that we’ve learned and enjoyed that day.

My child is a middle/high school student. What is there for them?

This is where the magic happens! 

 

Middle school and High school students join us as leaders who help to make all of the amazing things at VBC come to life. 

 

We ask leaders to tell us about what they loved about VBC or what they’re good at and put them in stations that suit their talents and interests.

 

Without youth leaders, we wouldn’t be able to make this important community event happen.

What procedures do you have in place for COVID?

VBC at OLP will follow the same guidelines as laid out by our school based on recommendations from the CDC and the Minnesota Department of Health.

 

These currently include requiring a mask when indoors for all children attending, social distancing as possible, and encouraging vaccination for all eligible attendees.

 

If your child is experiencing symptons common with COVID-19 (cough, difficulty breathing, fever, loss of taste or smell, chills, fatigue, muscle/body aches, headache, sore throat, congestion, nausea/vomiting/diarrhea) we ask that you please keep them home for at least 24 hours.

 

Your child may return to VBC at OLP once they have produced two negative test results at least 24 hours apart from each other and shared with VBC staff.
