About The Event VBS: June 10-14, 6-8 pm

At Scuba VBS children will learn how to dive into friendship with God. We will draw closer to God through music, Bible stories, games, crafts, and snacks.

What ages can attend this event?

Three year olds who are potty trained up through children who have completed 5th grade may register as participants for SCUBA VBS.

Children ages 3-5 who have not yet completed Kindergarten will experience age appropriate activities in a self-contained classroom and will enjoy use of our large motor play area.

Children who have completed Kindergarten-5th grade (as of June 2024) will begin and end the night in the Kids’ Sanctuary and travel to stations in crews of 5-8 children.

What does drop-off look like?

When you arrive for Scuba VBS on Monday, you'll enter through our main doors and check-in for VBS in the lobby. 

Preschool: You'll receive your room number at the check-in table and then proceed to your classroom to meet your VBS teacher. Preschool children will be dropped off and picked up in their classrooms each night. 

Elementary: You'll receive your crew number at the check-in table and then proceed to the Kid's Sanctuary to meet your crew leader. Your crew leader will take attendance each night and give you your name tag. 

What does pick-up look like?

When you come to pick up your children, you'll stop at the check-out table before being admitted to the kid's wing. When you register, you'll provide a list of all adults who have your permission to pick up your child. Our check-out attendant will reference this list to ensure all children leave with approved adults. 

Preschool Pick-up: 7:45 pm

Becasue many of our youngest attendees have earlier bedtimes and get more restless towards the end of the night, we have an earlier pick-up time for our preschoolers. If you have children in both preschool and elementary, please pick-up your preschooler first. Once you've been cleared to enter, you can head straight to their classroom and check-out your child with the teacher in that room. 

Elementary Pick-up: 8:00 pm

Once you've been cleared to enter, please check-out your child with their crew leader in the Kid's Sanctuary. Please be sure the crew leader has been notified before your child leaves with you--we don't want to give Ms. Bethany a heart attack over missing children! 

Is there a special event on Friday?

On Friday, we will run our regular VBS schedule BUT we will have an extended closing ceremony that parents are invited to from 7:45-8:30. 

Preschool pick-up will still be at 7:45 on Friday. If you'd like your preschooler to experience the closing ceremony, you're invited to bring them into the Kid's Sanctuary and have them sit with you.
