Good News Kids Bible Camp is a FREE Vacation Bible School hosted by First Baptist Church of New Philadelphia (the same people that have brought you after-school Good News Clubs in the past).

Our Bible Camp will be a safe & fun time for your child to learn about God & interact with other kids their age. Students that will be going into preschool through 5th grade for the 2022-23 school year are invited to join us!

All of our volunteers are trained & have passed a background check, so the only thing you have to worry about is dropping them off & picking them up each night.

Check-In & Check-Out

  • Doors open at 5:45 PM each night, and we will be dismissed at 8:00 PM each night.
  • Come around to the left side of the church and enter the doors under the awning.
  • You will need to come in the building with your child to check them in, and you will need to enter the building to check them out.
  • There will be 4 check-in tables divided by last name.
  • At check-in, your child will be given a colored wrist band that will designate their small group for the week, and you will be given a card with a number on it. You will need to bring that card when you come to check-out your child. If another adult is picking up your child, they will need to have the card. If that is not possible, you will need to notify the volunteer at the check-in desk of who will be picking up your child. There will be a new numbered card each night.
  • I know this may seem like a lot of details, but we do it for the security of your children.

Dress-Up & Snacks:

  • We will have a different snack each night for preschool & elementary. Please notify us if your child has any food allergies that we should avoid.
  • We will have dress-up themes each night. From those that dress up, we will pick a couple of winners who we think were best dressed. The more creative, the better!
    • Monday - Heroes & Princesses
    • Tuesday - Crazy Hat or Hair
    • Wednesday - Team Color
    • Thursday - Water Night (this will also be the night that we play water games.)
    • Friday - No dress up (this will be our family night.)

Special Nights:

  • Thursday will be the night we play water games. Please be sure that your child is dressed appropriately for the night, and if you don’t send them with a towel, you may want to bring one when you pick them up. When you pick up your child, you will need to come around to the back of the church building. You will not check them out inside the building. We will be outside.
  • Friday night is our Family Night. For this night, the whole family is invited to join us in the gym at 6:00 PM as we wrap up our fun week of Kids Bible Camp. Afterwards, everyone is welcomed to join us behind the church for ice cream, games, face painting, balloon animals and more! An adult will need to accompany your child for this night. There will be no check-in or check-out process, so there must be at least one adult attending with your child.
