Yes! We will be building with CARDBOARD again this summer!

Join us for this year's Building Beloved Community South Minneapolis Day Camp! As we sing, pray, and listen to stories from Scripture together, our kids will be grounded in the Spirit's work in building community. Camp is for children entering kindergarten through high school, with a separate middle and high school track and opportunities for high school leadership with the younger kids.

Being still mindful of COVID: We plan to do all large group singing and eating outside on Bethel's spacious grounds. We are asking families to pack a lunch from home for each day of camp; snacks will be provided at camp. We always encourage mask wearing, especially for those who may be at high risk or vulnerable. We continue to pay attention to updated public health guidance as day camp approaches and adjust our protocols accordingly.

Adult volunteers needed!

Day Camp is looking for adult volunteers! If you have a heart for kids and time to serve June 20-23, we would love to have you join us. We need adult volunteers all week (Tuesday June 20 - Friday June 23) from 8:30 am - 4 pm and a special crew for take down and clean up on Friday. We welcome you to sign up for the week, a day, a morning or afternoon, or just a few hours on Friday evening. Click the link below to sign up and indicate your availability! 


A progressive ecumenical day camp experience offering faith formation in a fun, safe, Christ centered and relational setting. Worship, crafts, music, and games make for a fun and meaningful week of beloved community!
