This year St. John the Evangelist, Edmonton has developed a five-day video Vacation Bible Camp and Backyard Circus on the theme of The Greatest Commandment. We’re happy to offer this content to any other interested families or parishes!
The camp is a series of five videos which families can do all in one week, or over the course of the summer. The camp includes crafts, outdoor activities, bible stories, and discipleship challenges. The content is aimed at elementary aged children, though we have found that kids of all ages have been enjoying it.
We have a craft supplies list which can be used by individual families or churches. At St. John’s, following careful covid procedures, we packed and delivered free craft boxes to the families who registered. We opted for delivery so families didn’t need to run errands during covid and because our research suggested that asking people to pick up boxes led to much lower participation.
We are happy to share these videos with any families or parishes, but we can’t post the links publicly to protect the children involved. If you would like to use or preview them please email firstname.lastname@example.org for access.
