Saint George Parish will be offering Vacation Bible School this summer for students aged 5-12. Teens aged 13-20 are invited to help run the camp, teaching daily lessons, running games, teaching crafts and dances, and performing skits. Our theme this year is “Marvelous Mystery: The Mass Comes Alive.”
During each of the five days, participants will learn how the Mass is a Mystery, a Gift, a Celebration, a Meal, and a Call as they explore the virtues of patience, peace, unity, faith and generosity and learn about saints who exhibited each of those virtues.
Two weeks prior to the actual camp, Teen Boot Camp will be held in the evening from 5:30 PM to 8:30 PM. Teens will eat as a group (dinner will be provided each night) and then work together studying the material, choreographing music, writing and rehearsing skits, and organizing crafts. Additional evenings may be scheduled depending on the speed at which preparations are accomplished.
