Q: Who will be caring for my child?
A: All children will be in the care of loving and responsible adults who have had a background check and who have been trained in "Safe Sanctuary" practices.

Q: What group will my child be in?
A: This year's VBS curriculum assigns kids to small, multi-age crews––preschoolers (ages 3–K) are together and elementary students (1st-5th grades) are together. The crew size will not exceed 5 children, and each crew will be facilitated by at least one adult. These small, multi-age crews foster friendships in new ways with a focus on teamwork.

Q: What if my child has a food allergy?
A: For children with allergies, please also consider packing a snack for them if you are concerned about your child eating the daily provided snack (like crackers, fresh fruit, etc.)

Q: What should my child wear?
A: Since everything is hands-on, from crafts to science experiments, kids might get a little messy. Be sure to send them in play clothes and safe, close-toed shoes.

Q: Where can I find out more about the curriculum and activities?

Volunteers, we're thrilled to have you!

Please fill out the form below if you're interested in volunteering. You will need to attend a training workshop to prepare for your role at VBS and to understand our church's Safe Sanctuary policy.
