Saxe Gotha Kids: VBS, Activities & Camps

We have many fun and exciting activities to offer children this summer through our 2019 Summer VBS, Activities, & Camps! Our SGPC summer camps continue to be a big hit for the children in our community each summer. Kids play and learn about art, basketball, and much more! We welcome the children of SGPC members, as well as any children in the community who are not a formal part of Saxe Gotha Presbyterian. So make plans to join us this summer for a LOT of FUN in a very wholesome, Christian environment! Be sure to check out the Children's ministry webpage, too, for other activities for kids that are planned!

2019 Summer Camps:

This opportunity is focused on GROWTH! The Bible is presented to our children in a way they can understand and retain. Children experience both large group and small group times and have a chance to connect with a small group leader that helps give them a sense of belonging.
