There’s still plenty of ways to get involved and get connected at First Church during the summer months. Check them all out below!




Camp Penn (Waynesboro, PA) & Wesley Forest (Weikert, PA)

Summer camp offers a unique opportunity for children and youth to be themselves and experience a true, loving, Christian community. If your child is interested in attending, we want to make you aware of several dates at Camp Penn and Wesley Forest. Simply click the name of the camp to access their “save the date” flyer. We also want to highlight these special weeks of camp:

Double Scoop of Awesome Sauce 1 & 2 (for kids in Grades 1 – 3)

There are scholarships available for anyone who may need it. Please reach out to our Children’s Minister, Courtney, to inquire about financial assistance.

You can register your child(ren) by finding a packet at the information centers at our (FEC) and (CLC) campuses, or at the Church Office. If you choose to register online, you must forward a receipt. You can email the receipt to our Children’s Minister, Courtney. Be sure to register by May 1, 2023, for a $25 Early Bird discount.

Kids are invited to shine their light at Vacation Bible School! We’ll be launching on a cosmic quest to learn more about Jesus’ love, all while having an out-of-this-world adventure of faith-building fun. This summer, VBS will be June 26 – 30, 2023, with each day running from 9:00 AM – 12:00 PM. VBS is for any potty-trained kid age 3 through completed 4th grade. 

Registration is on a first come, first serve basis and will be capped at the first 200 submissions. The link will open May 15 and close June 19. Walk-ins are welcome on each morning, but depending on the amount of existing registrants we have, we may not be able to accept your child.

If you are interested in volunteering at VBS, please reach out to Courtney.
