Vacation Bible School    

Weird Animals - Where Jesus’ Love Is One-of-a-Kind     


Sunday, July 20th - Thursday, July 25th

6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

Free for all children ages 3 to 5th grade


God created a world of lots of crazy creatures, including you! When kids feel weird, different, or even lost in a crowd, nothing compares to the extraordinary love of Jesus. Come join us all week (or just one night) at our “Weird Animals” Vacation Bible School where we will learn and have fun with Bible stories, crafts, songs, a snack, and games.




 How are your children spending their summer vacation?


Camping can satisfy what children need! They experience faith, responsibility, and cooperation as parts of a caring community. They experience self-esteem as children of God. In a world where it is hard to be a kid, and it is hard to be parent, let East Ohio Camps be your partner in faith and the development of your child. With hundreds of events to choose from, one will be right for you and your child! Sports, drama, water and horses just to name a few. Great places and great experiences all in one great place with a caring staff.

If you would like more information, please contact Robin Merideth, Camp Coordinator for Wedgewood.

More information is also available at the camp website www.EOCSSummercamps.org.
