Vacation Bible School and Choir Camp Build Beloved Community

St. Martin’s two summer camp programs, Vacation Bible School and Choir Camp, are just one way that we are becoming beloved community at St. Martin’s. These programs draw participants from all over our diverse communities of Chestnut Hill and Mt. Airy, fostering relationships beyond the parish.  Our scholarship program ensures that more families can afford the week’s fees. 

There are several ways that you can be involved:

- Sign up your kids and grandkids and invite your neighbors so we can have full camp experiences.
- Volunteer to be a shepherd or kitchen helper. High school students and adults are needed to assist with the small groups, which are led by City Camp counselors. Our kitchen staff prepares snacks and full lunch for campers. You can sign up to volunteer on the camp registration pages above.
- Make a donation to support our camp scholarships. Each year we offer several full and partial scholarships to area families. The cost of VBS is $85 for the week, and Choir Camp is $75. Send a check payable to St. Martin-in-the-Fields and put “camp donation” in the comment line.
