Asbury summer camps include Musical Theater, Minecraft, more

NORTH SHELBY – Registration is underway for Asbury United Methodist Church’s popular annual summer camps.

Those interested can register online at AsburyKidsTown.org/summer camps.

Recreation Director Ellen Dean said this year’s camp schedule is designed around offering children complementary camps during the week of the church’s Vacation Bible School, and being able to combine camps into an all-day option.

“It’s open to the community,” Dean said. “Anyone can come; they just need to register.”

New camps this year include Board Game camp and Minecraft camp (which replaces a Lego camp).

Enrollment capacity varies depending on the camp, with some limited to about 25 participants (such as Science camp and Minecraft camp) and others (such as Basketball camp) able to accommodate up to 80 children.

All camps, including typical outdoor activities like soccer and lacrosse, are held indoors at the church.

Asbury’s Vacation Bible School will be held from 8:30 to noon June 24-27, and is designed for rising kindergarten to fifth grade boys and girls. The cost is $5.

Registration will be required for VBS; no walk-ups will be allowed.

Parents who opt to combine camps for an all-day option should pack their child’s lunch each day.

Snacks and devotionals will be provided during the camps.
