Compassion Camp: What Every Living Thing Needs


Check out the lyric video for our first single from this year's new Compassion Camp music.

Through Compassion Camp: What Every Living Thing Needs, participants will explore what all living things need to live—shelter, food, water, air, and community—and how we can have compassion for the living earth, especially in their local ecosystems. Through awareness, gratitude, wonderment, reciprocity, and kinship, participants will consider how to become co-sustainers and participants in the work of God’s creation. Using Psalm 104 as our grounding text, along with additional supporting scripture, participants will closely examine the interconnectedness of the whole earth—humans alongside the more-than-human world.

Reviews of Compassion Camp

I love that I can trust Illustrated Ministry and the curriculum writers of Compassion Camp to offer a grace-centered, theologically sound VBS that actually means something to our kids and families. -Casey

Wonderful VBS Program! We used this curriculum with children from 2 to 11 years old and they all loved it! It is easily adaptable and customizable to all denominations. -Milah 

So great! This curriculum was so fun, rich, and easy to use. Our families felt it was age-appropriate, relevant to their kids' lives, and beautiful. Kids enjoyed the conversations, crafts, and activities, and teen volunteers found value in the conversations too! -Michelle

Amazing Curriculum! I’ve been raving about this curriculum, and two colleagues used it on the strength of my recommendations. Well planned, theologically sound, connects the lessons to the kids’ lives, keeps the kids engaged. -Lisa

We’ve enjoyed using Compassion Camp curriculum for the last 2 years! We’ve adapted it to use as our theme for the entire congregation and put packets together for families of all sizes to use in ways that work for them. I’ve recommended this to a variety of folks...and they have all thanked me for introducing them to Illustrated Ministry! -Michelle

Inventive & Fun! Compassion Camp saved VBS! The kids loved it! It was inventive, the lessons were enjoyable, and the kids were so excited to have to see each other. Well done Illustrated Ministry! -Aimee

Compassion Camp is the Best! It was refreshing to have progressive, compassionate, social justice-oriented theology (and with inclusive language too!). -Ann

Inclusive & Fun! The theology was much more progressive and inclusive than other curricula.
