Vacation Bible School
Vacation Bible School is one of our most favorite times of the year. For three days at the end of June children of the Dripping Springs congregation, as well as from our community, come together to learn more about Jesus and His teachings. The theme of the 2016 VBS was the Apostle Paul; Hero of Faith and included many fun activities, a petting zoo on Tuesday, a lot of singing and being with friends. Parents were invited on Wednesday evening to a free dinner and presentation of VBS fun and activities. Prior registration is strongly suggested to ensure a free t-shirt for the participant.
*This youth camp is held annually in June at the Hensel Christian Youth Camp. Since 1965, this Encampment facility has been a place where young and old alike could enjoy recreation, fellowship, while being taught under the guidance of Christian men and women.
Hensel Camp is Located at Travis Peak, thirty five miles northwest of the Texas State Capital in Austin just off Ranch Road 1431 on Singleton Bend Road, The Camp is easily accessible and because of the normally mild winters in Central Texas, is useable every week of the year. Much preparation has gone into the idea of Hensel Camp. Today there are eight dormitories and a magnificent dining hall that is capable of serving 200 campers. The dinning hall is a multipurpose structure and is fully equipped with commercial restaurant equipment. The Hall itself is a big open room with a fireplace at the end opposite the food serving line. The room can be set up as an auditorium, a dinning room, or an indoor play area during bad weather. Overlooking Cow Creek on the West side of the building a covered patio has been added complete with picnic table seating for some 100 campers. A patio on the East side of the building, overlooks a large, well furnished playground. Volleyball, Basketball, Softball, Soccer, and many other areas of interest for the campers are available. Swimming is provided in a beautiful small lake on Cow Creek, where there is a large deck, plus rope swings over the water.
