Sacred Summer Adventure: Resources to Host a ULC Vacation Bible School Alternative

Sacred Summer Adventure is a Universal Life Church alternative to traditional Vacation Bible School. It is still a one week program, but would not incorporate the Bible to as great an extent as one would find in a traditional Protestant or evangelical church. However, if that's what you're into, you can always modify it to include more Bible.

The following is the high level outline of the week's programming. As you will see, there is not yet a great depth of detail, nor guidance for refreshments or games outside the lesson plans. These should not be forgotten when planning your SSA week, because above all we want the children to have a positive experience. Consider the following a starting point for your own planning, and feel free to modify and expand on it however you think best.

Activity: Create a collage or mural representing the Universal Life 

Activity: Write a prayer for peace or healing 

Activity: Create a forgiveness tree 

Activity: Volunteer at a local soup kitchen or homeless shelter 

Activity: Create a life wheel to represent your hopes, dreams, and goals
