The last week of June, VBS takes over the whole church building, transforming it to incorporate the VBS theme. For the last five years, we have averaged 175-200 kids and about 70 workers. The program is for K-6, plus a nursery and preschool class for workers' children. Many teens from the youth ministry serve as small group leaders. There is no fee to attend VBS.
About half the kids are from Calvary. Of the other half, one-third list no church home.
We generally use Group VBS curriculum.
For many years, Calvary has offered Kids Camp for grades 3rd-6th, with 6th graders now having the option to attend Middle School Camp. Since 2012 camp has been held at Mayfield Youth Camp.
Most of the camp staff is from Calvary. We have two counselors per cabin, one of whom is a high school youth.

Calvary Community Preschool has been in operation since 1982. Its purpose is to provide a happy, nurturing environment for children to grow and learn socially, academically, and spiritually. Its mission is to be a witness of God's love to the children, their families, and the community, through the gifts God has given us.
The curriculum includes the alphabet, numbers, shapes, colors, music, science, social interaction and growth, and small and large motor development; also Biblical teaching, including Bible stories, songs, and prayer. The program includes monthly field trips, activities shared with parents, Thanksgiving Program, Christmas Program, Mother's Day Tea, and Graduation.
The Preschool has its own board of directors. For the last four years, there have been 20 students in the 4-year old class and 12 students in the 3-year old class.
