Over the last couple of weeks, we have been working very hard to make Park’s very first children’s summer camp,VBS, a fun exciting experience for the kids. The week was themed “The Loop”. We are a city-centric church and we love to celebrate the urban life experience. We built “L” tracks around the ceiling of our children’s area by cutting forms out of 1” thick styrofoam with a hot knife. We built a version of the great hall of Chicago’s Field Museum on our main stage. The main teaching segments happened there. It was themed Night at the Museum where the Bible characters, the t-rex skeleton and the statues came alive to teach. This included a night guard to guide us through the story. We created the museum out of 2” thick styrofoam and added some faux painting. The effort of many volunteers and staff has paid off with a great week of seeing children impacted for the glory of God.
This video is a brief look at the construction of the L.
This is the initial test of the crude animation.
