This year’s multiage Family Adventure Bible School—Destination the Great Outdoors was a combination of the old and the new. We decided to try something a little different, and invited everyone, from infant to adult, to join students from preschool through 5th grade for three activity-packed evenings: June 20, 21, and 22, 2017. We again used Menno Media curriculum, with the theme “Digging for Treasure, Parables Revealed.” Everyone gathered at the church pavilion for singing, the Bible story and drama. Then, with Eric Haglund and Willis Beitzel as leaders and guides, the group walked to the Alta Schrock Nature Trail on the Springs Folk Festival grounds for a scavenger hunt that reinforced the night’s parable. The Scavenger Hunt ended at a Treasure Chest from which each student received a parable-related take-home “treasure.” After returning to the pavilion area, everyone ended the evening with Active Response activities, a snack, singing, more learning, and wrap-up.
