FAQs

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 4–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?
 Visit the Rolling River Rampage info page.

Something New... After VBS Camp

The After VBS Sports Camp is for 5–12 year old boys & girls and will be held August 5-8, from 12:00-4:00 pm each day.

This is an after VBS program.

Please be aware of and sensitive to the fact that some children may have nut allergies. Please write a name or cell phone number with permanent marker on any items you want returned if found.
