VBS Campers
"My daughter said it was the best week ever!!! We will be back next year"
"This was my daughter's first time attending VBS. I sent her for the half day session and by day 2 she was asking if she could go to the full day! The energy, enthusiasm, and excitement was felt by all!"
"He was skeptical at first, but came home the first day LOVING it. He was sad that it didn't last longer."
