What is Virtual Bible Camp?
Virtual Bible Camp: Caring for God’s Creation is a new faith formation learning resource offered by Our Lady of the Fields. Through videos created by our wonderful catechists, you can listen to Bible stories, make crafts, prepare snacks, and play games – all from your home and free of charge!
Who can participate?
While the activities are geared towards children ages 4-10, everyone is welcome to participate.
When does it begin?
The entire set of videos will be available Saturday, August 1. Everything will be pre-recorded so that you can join in at any time. Complete the activities at your convenience throughout the rest of the summer.
