If any readers panicked when they read that the last week of Rec camp ends on August 17th, they may be happy to be reminded there’s a half day option in town the following week.
St. Mark’s Episcopal Church is again holding its VBS (Vacation Bible School) camp in August for pre-K to entering 5th grade.
Kids do not have to be affiliated with St. Mark’s (or any) church or be Southborough residents to attend the program.
One of the best things about the camp is it’s timing. As in most years, this summer’s program is offered the week prior to the start of school, when many area camps are no longer in session.*
The annual camp is run by CORI-checked adults and younger helpers. Which means, the church is also seeking volunteers middle school and older.
Here are this summer’s details:
COME SAIL WITH US AT “SHIPWRECKED” VACATION BIBLE SCHOOL (VBS) THIS AUGUST!
Bring your kids to a fun, affordable day camp to end their summer on a high note. From 9- 12 on August 20-24, children in pre k (age 4) to those entering grade 5 are invited to VBS at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church at 27 Main Street in Southborough.
Every day campers will enjoy crafts, games, songs, science activities, interactive Bible stories, skits and snacks. We hope that your kids can join us. We are also looking for middle school and high school volunteers and adult volunteers to be part of our Shipwrecked VBS team.
