Every year, Mt. Olive Lutheran Church provides a Vacation Bible School (VBS), utilizing camp counselors from Lutherhaven Ministries, based in Idaho.  Each summer Lutherhaven sends their popular Community Day Camp programs to more than 30 congregations throughout the Inland Northwest!

Colorful banner with the words "VBS Arts & Crafts"Lutherhaven sends a team of up to four camp staff people to conduct a five-day program of fun games, great camp songs, youth Bible encounters, worship, crafts, archery, and more.

The camp usually runs for one week here at Mt. Olive Lutheran Church and Preschool.  We invite 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; those entering Kindergarten in the fall are invited from 9:00 AM – 12:00 Noon.
