Compassion Camp FAQs!
You may have some questions about how this works – let’s see if we can answer those below!
- Is there a schedule for Compassion Camp? The short answer is not really – it is designed that you can work at your own pace. If you’d like more guidance, see the suggested schedules on the following pages.
VBS will last 5 weeks, beginning July 12th, with a new topic introduced each Sunday during worship. While we highly recommend you complete the weeks on time, if your week gets busy or you are on a vacation, you’re AOK! All resources will remain online for you until August 30th, so catch up as you are able – no worries!
- How do I get my materials? You can pick up your weekly kits on Sunday mornings from 8am-11am, Mondays from 7am-3pm, Thursdays 7am-3pm, or contact Amity at firstname.lastname@example.org for other options.
- Does Compassion Camp cost anything? Nope! There is no cost to participants!
- How can I get to know other participants? We have a few ways in mind to interact such as an adult Bible study will be held through Zoom on Wednesday evenings, where you can chat in live time. We have plans for lots of interaction through Facebook during the week. There is also great website we’ll use, called Flipgrid, that will allow you to upload a video of your own (super easy!), and see what others have to say – fun!
- My family is tired of being online so much. Are we required to use the online portions? Nope! Each step of the lesson that has a video option also has a text option which you can print off, and the full text is included in the packets that can be picked up from the church building each week.
- Don’t live locally? Not a problem! We can find a way to get a physical copy of the resources to you if you desire, otherwise most supplies are items you already have in your home. And, with everything being posted online, you’ll be all set!
- Can I share VBS with my family or my grandkids? You bet! Be sure to get them registered at www.firstlutheran-barron.org/compassion-camp-registration so we can get them all the awesome resources.
