Today on the podcast, Sean and Makenna discuss the carnival themed VBS that Elevate ran this last summer.

During the week long VBS preteens created their own carnival booths, took a trip to a real-life carnival – the California state fair, and held their own carnival at the end of the week. Sean and Makenna discuss the details of the week including a clown university that didn’t go as well as they would have hoped.

The week ended with a fundraiser on Sunday after church where the kids were able to show off their carnival booths. It was a great opportunity for the church to see what was happening during the week at camp.
