See you next summer!

Information on past Safaris can be found below. 

 In 1986 we first gathered together with a small group of dedicated adults and an even smaller group of energetic children to hold a Catholic Vacation Bible School in Springfield. My how we have grown! Each summer the community of St. Joseph/ St. Raphael hosts a week of Spirit-filled activities that we call Scripture Safari. It is definitely a journey that you don’t want to miss. Participants range from 4 years of age to those entering the 6th grade. But we don’t stop there. Anyone who is entering the 7th grade through 12th grade is needed as a teen helper. Teen helpers are small group leaders, assisting the lesson leader and guiding the children through Safari.  We also have teens that go out into the community to serve where they are needed. They are called Safari Gold. But we don’t stop there! Adults come to Safari each year to serve in the classrooms, cafeteria, games, Safari Gold leaders, and walkers. Find out more about this tradition that we call Scripture Safari. There is a place for you here!
