The East County church themed this year's camp on travel.

Children enrolled in Woodland Community Church's annual summer vacation Bible school "traveled" throughout the church this week to different activities, themed around the church's biblical message, "journey off the maps." Students aged pre-kindergarten through 5th grade participated in crafts, bible lessons and recreational activities that reflected the theme.
Jennifer Passmore, Director of Preschool, said the program had 875 children registered this year. Her feeling about organizing for that many students? "mass chaos," she said. One family in the church had attended the program for five years before they moved to Orlando this year, she said. The family organized their vacation so that their children could attend the vacation Bible school.
Shannon Satira has been a pre-kindergarten teacher at Woodland for about five years, and volunteered to do a game class this year at camp.
"I like to let (the kids) have fun and learn about God's word," she said.
