At Mount Vernon, providing fun and engaging bible-based kids’ activities for our community is a highlight of our year! This summer we have an exciting lineup of events planned for children of all ages. Please see below for details and registration links…and we’ll see YOU this summer!

Our 2017 preschool camps are held 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. weekdays for ages 3 through completed kindergarten ($50/week).
June 19-23: Camp Out
You’ve never camped like this before! On each day of our Camp Out preschool camp, your kids will take a fun trek with friends through an outdoor adventure (minus the poison ivy, bug spray, wild animals, and lack of sleep!). Along the way, they’ll kindle new friendships, sing, play, and discover that Jesus is the light of the world. Don’t miss it…and bring a friend!
July 24-28: Maker Fun Factory
Join other preschool friends on a “factory tour” where we will learn about how our wonderful God–the Ultimate Inventor–built each and every one of us for a great purpose. Come enjoy the fun!
Vacation Bible School
Our 2017 VBS features two concurrent sessions covering ages 4 through completed 6th grade. Both sessions are held 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. and are FREE to registered participants.
July 10-13: Maker Fun Factory – Ages 4 through Completed 4th Grade
This VBS takes kids on an interactive “factory tour” in which we become inventors and experience God–the Ultimate Inventor! There will be Bible adventures, snacks, games, music, and crafts as we learn we are all created by God and built for His great purposes. Don’t miss it!
July 10-13: PreTeen Camp – Completed 5th-6th Grade
Targeted at late-elementary students, our PreTeen Camp is designed to help kids learn how they can connect with God and others! Your pre-teen will experience high energy worship music, games, food, and learn four crucial faith skills to help them grow in their walk with the Lord Jesus: Hear, Pray, Talk, and Live! PreTeen Camp runs concurrently with our VBS for younger children so the whole family can be involved!
