Vacation Bible School.  This link provides a suggested 3-day Orthodox Christian Vacation Bible School program for children in grades 1 through teen.  This was the first Bible School program implemented at my Parish in 2013 with the Parish Priest’s blessings.   It is a simple program providing spiritual enrichment and Orthodox centered youth discussions and activities. This program was implemented in a Greek Orthodox Church, so various references and hymns are rendered in Greek and refer to Greek Orthodox youth groups, HOPE,JOY and GOYA.  These can be easily changed to accommodate your jurisdiction.
