Vacation Bible School (VBS)
Vacation Bible School is held each year for children age three through fifth grade. Children enjoy crafts, food, gym activities, singing and learning more about God's love.
VBS is for 3 year olds thru completed 5th grade.
Ecumenical Day Camp
In August, First Presbyterian leads an ecumenical day camp for children entering first through sixth grades. Every day the group of approximately 50 children along with more than 20 teachers and helpers meet at church and travel in church buses to Covenant Point Camp in Holts Summit.
At camp, they have a Bible story, music, crafts, discussions, recreation, lunch and TWO snacks, as well as swimming, boating and hiking! It is a really fun week and a great way to get ready for school to begin.
Covenant Point Camp
We are fortunate to have the Missouri Union
Presbytery Covenant Point Camp located just across the river in Holts Summit. It is a great place for children to get away from the everyday and connect with God and one another.
For children entering kindergarten through third grades, camp includes parents, grandparents or other adult family member to share in the activities and overnight camping fun. Together, the kids and adults participate in Bible study, worship, crafts, games and more.
For youth entering third grade and beyond, Covenant Point offers weeklong camps. Campers enjoy a memorable week exploring faith, sleeping in cabins, fun and friendships. Their days are filled with Bible stories, worship, crafts, games, swimming, canoeing, archery and music.
