Resource Assets & Materials

Vacation Bible Camp is an excellent opportunity for outreach, not only to your church family with children but also to the greater community. Learn how Church of the Resurrection plans and organizes Vacation Bible Camp around a common theme and executes for all age levels.

In this Resource, you will find: detailed lesson plans for Early Childhood through 5th grade, large group time drama, graphics and videos, volunteer training materials, missions details and more. Everything you need to provide an amazing experience for your kiddos is included, from detailed craft plans and snack ideas to small group discussion prompts and how to pull off a successful shaving cream party.  Feel free to use bits and pieces or the entire thing!

The theme, You’ve Got a Friend in Me, is based on the Toy Story series of movies. Each day focuses on a different aspect of being a good friend. Jesus is a friend to all of us and his life is the best example we can follow to learn how to be a good friend to others.
