Attention!! All families of Kindergarten through 4th grade children! We are so excited to be offering VLM Day Camp this year!

  • Sunday, July 19, 6-7 pm (Family meet and greet!)
  • Mon July 20-Thurs July 23, 9am-3pm (K-4th grade)

As a joint effort, Gethsemane, Messiah, and Our Savior’s Lutheran Churches will be sharing the responsibilities and excitement of this great summertime event!

Please join us on Sunday, July 19th from 6:00 to 7:00 at the Olcott Park in Virginia as we introduce you and your children to the VLM counselors for the week. We will enjoy popsicles and ice cream while meeting the new Day Camp counselors! It will be a great introduction time with a short time of fellowship and fun! (Scroll down to register)

And then Monday morning at 9:00 am on July 20th, the fun begins! VLM Day Camp will run Monday through Thursday from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm each day at Gethsemane Lutheran Church! We ask that you supply your children with a bag lunch each day. Our registration fee is only $20 for these 4 fabulous days!

The Voyageurs Lutheran Ministry Day Camp program is designed to introduce the Bible camping experience to youth of the congregation.  It is a unique blend of outdoor ministry and congregational ministry.  The VLM staff brings to the week their own enthusiasm and leadership/teaching style, which local volunteers enhance with similar gifts as well as knowledge of the community needs and resources. Together we make Day Camp an exciting and enriching experience.

We will conclude on Thursday evening with a Parent Program, asking Day Camp participants to share with parents and other members of the congregation what happened during the week of Day Camp. The program will include songs and overview of each day’s Bible study, as well as any special skits or projects the campers would like to share.

We look forward to this new adventure with you and your family!
