Community Day Camp

During the summer each year, Mt. Olive Lutheran Church provides a no-cost Vacation Bible School (VBS) for children up to 12 years of age. We utilize the services of trained camp counselors from Idaho-based Lutherhaven Ministries. Each summer Lutherhaven sends their popular Community Day Camp programs to more than 30 congregations throughout the Inland Northwest!

Staff and Activities

Mount Olive contracts with the Lutherhaven to send us camp staff people to conduct the five-day program, Monday through Friday. The staff plans numerous exciting activities, including games, camp songs, youth Bible encounters, worship, crafts, archery, and more.

Monday through Friday

Our free day camp runs from Monday through Friday. It all takes place here at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church and Preschool. 

Ages of Children

We invite all students up to 12 years of age who will be entering first through sixth grade in the fall to attend our VBS from 9:00 AM – 3:00 PM Monday through Friday.

In addition, we invite those children who will be entering Kindergarten in the fall to Day Camp from 9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon.
