We are so excited to officially announce our VBS for 2024: Camp Firelight! All are welcome to join us from Monday July 8th to Thursday July 11th for this incredible experience! VBS is our biggest week of the year of WHLC, filled with community services, new friends, fun activities & a chance for students to deepen their walk with God! This free event is open to all students in Pre-K thru those entering 6th grade in the fall, and we encourage students to invite their family & friends. It’s a fun week you won’t want to miss!
Our VBS follows a daycamp format, and starts at 9am each day. Pre-K programs run until noon, while activities for K-6th graders runs until just before 3:30pm! Lunch is provided by WHLC every day of VBS, and all kids get a free VBS T-Shirt for registering! Students spend time both together as one large cohort for All Camp Activities, and in smaller groups partaking in things such as music, games & Bible Study.
Our theme for this year is Camp Firelight! It comes by way of the folks at Cokesbury, and we’ve loved using their VBS the past few years. Camp Firelight revolves around helping students to trust in God, no matter the circumstances, as He helps us to overcome fears and share His love with everyone! Students will explore their faith, and learn how they can serve their community through this exciting theme!
To register for VBS, simply click on the links above (or on our Facebook page), and fill out the registration forms! There is no cap to the size of VBS, and there is room for everyone (we had over 70 students join us last year)! Of course, to make such a huge and awesome week work here at WHLC every summer, we need tons of support from volunteers, and you’ll find a sign-up below for that as well!
No special experience or skills is required to help at VBS, just a willingness to have fun with the group and experience the week alongside them! Anyone student in 7th grade or up can volunteer, and VBS volunteering is a great way to fill thinks like Silver Cord, volunteer hours, or experience for any job working with younger kids. We’d love to have you serve with us during this fun week!
