*Great news! We've had wonderful interest and support for preschool and VBS! We have now opened up VBS for potty-trained preschool aged kiddos too! Even better, for preschoolers registered for Summer Splash, they have the option to bring a cold, nut-free lunch and extend their day with Lunch Bunch which provides quiet time and care before transitioning to VBS!

 


Summer Camp

We love our partnership with Green Lake Lutheran Ministry for summer camp. This year we are encouraging families to sign-up directly with Green Lake and choose the week that works best for you and your friends. Unfortunately, we were unable to support a dedicated week for SOLLC this year. Church camp is a life changing faith experience for all ages and we hope you will choose to attend Green Lake this summer!
