Groups & Programs

There is a place for you here!


Come learn and grow together in faith! Mount Olivet offers a variety of groups and programs for children and families. Some are ongoing; others happen periodically. Some are just for kids; others are for parents and caregivers. In all of our activities, we seek to support children and families in their journey of faith and give them tools and resources along the way. All are welcome.

Summer Camps

Spend this summer with your friends at Mount Olivet! Our newly expanded day camp offerings will provide a consistent care option for your kids throughout the summer from 7:30am-5:30pm. Participate in new and exciting programming as well as Mount Olivet classics like Vacation Bible School and God’s Kids Sing! Each week will have activities surrounding its theme including crafts, movement games, music, service learning and FUN! Join us for one week, or the whole summer!

Each Day Camp is $225/session and includes snacks, t-shirt, activities and field trips with transportation when applicable.

If you are unable to join us for a full week of day camp, we will be offering drop-in day options 7/6-7/8, 8/22-8/26 and 8/29-9/1 at a daily rate of $45.

*All field trips are subject to change!

Each week in Musikgarten, children birth to three years of age, along with the adults who love them, gather to create and experience the magic of music in a safe and loving community. Join us as we sing, dance, wiggle, laugh, play instruments, and experience the joy that only music can provide!

Daytime and evening classes are led year-round by our licensed Musikgarten teachers, and families can purchase classroom resources to use at home if they wish.

Join Amy Porthan for the fall session of Babygarten at Mount Olivet! This 6-week class designed by a children’s librarian and early childhood specialist focuses on reading, rhyming, and hands-on activities. More than a storytime or playgroup – we’ll encourage pre-literacy skills for children in a fun, faith-based environment for children. Registration link coming soon for 2022!

Questions? Amy Porthan – or 612.767.2285.
