One Story

Campfire VBS will take kids on a hike through a classic camp experience as they map out the truth that Jesus is the light of the world.

From the makers of the One Story curriculum, and exclusively on RaiseUpFaith, Campfire is a Jesus-centered, joy-filled, media rich 5 day VBS experience that your kids will love.

Why Campfire?

All of the best things happen around a Campfire! Light, warmth. Friends, family. Stories, laughter. S'mores and more! There's something about that glow, that invitation to linger that stirs up some amazing memories and ideas.

Someone who knows a thing or two about getting a good campfire chat going is awesome adventurer Bear Grylls. Here he is introducing Campfire!

Getting Set - starting the Campfire!

Every good campfire starts with just one match being struck. As you read on you'll learn how to set up your very own Campfire, so that your kids can take the light and pass it on.

Kids will love Campfire VBS

From the games, crafts, snacks, Bible stories, songs and campfire chats to the everyday moments with their camp counsellors and fellow campers. This invitational VBS will help kids discover that they can be light-bringers in their families, communities and beyond!

Strike A Match

Every good campfire has a great singalong, and this one is no different - Campfire comes with its very own theme song for you to sing together every day. Careful though, this one will stick in your head for months to come. Here's a sneaky peak.

Foundational Verse

We take our inspiration for Campfire straight from the book of Hebrews - the idea that our young people will take the light that lives in them, and pass it on to help each other do good works, and light up the world with the love of Jesus.
