Vacation Bible School


A summer kids’ event known as Vacation Bible School was hosted at Boonton United Methodist Church from June 25 to June 29, 2018.  Each year has a different theme.   The kids enjoyed “Conquering Everest ” in  2016’s and spelunking with “Cave Quest” in 2017.  Last year, the children spent each day creating, building, and learning about their Creator God, who built them for a purpose. Stay tuned and check back in during the spring, when we announce the theme and dates for our 2019 VBS!

Vacation Bible School

2018 Participants embarked on an adventure to the Maker Fun Factory – Created by God Built for a Purpose.  Curious kids became hands-on inventors who discovered they’re lovingly crafted by God and sparked creativity with interactive decoration and experiences throughout the week in memorable activities such as:

  • Singing catchy songs
  • Teamwork/building games
  • Make and dig into yummy treats
  • Experience epic Bible Adventures
  • Test out Sciency-Fun Gizmos
  • Craft activities

Vacation Bible School is for kids from 3 yrs. old (potty trained) to 12 yrs. old and runs from 9am to 12pm each day. There is no cost for this camp, we just ask for a donation  for our Loaves and Fishes Community food pantry.

We will coordinate efforts with Rockaway Valley United Methodist and Montville United Methodist churches so children throughout the area can experience a great send off to their summer vacation.
