Ready to travel back in time? Join us in Rome! The Vacation Bible School program will explore the caves of the underground church, meet the Apostle Paul, create cool Bible-times projects, experience thrilling real-life dramas, play high energy games, sample tasty Mediterranean snacks and hear unforgettable music.

This event is run by several volunteers from four congregations plus chaplains at Garrison Petawawa. Stephanie McKimm from Pine Ridge Community Church is one of the lead organizers. The breakfast club is run by Julie McBride with support from Elaine Chalmers, from St. George’s Chapel. The Music program is coordinated by Sosun  Suh from St. George’s and Beth Brown from Trail Head Baptist. Several chaplains are taking various acting positions. Games are being organized by Tim Roddick from Trailhead Baptist. Food, always important, is co-ordinated by several volunteers from St. George’s chapel. Tribe leaders and  helpers are from St. George’s, St. Francis of Assisi, Pine Ridge and Trail Head.  This is truly a group effort and a great example of churches working together to support military families at Garrison Petawawa.

The adventure will take place at St. George’s Chapel, Garrison Petawawa. It starts at 9 a.m. and finishes at noon. There is a breakfast club at 7:30 a.m. The program is suitable for ages  5-11.
