What Is VBS?
VBS is a nationwide program many churches offer. The purpose is to incorporate themed activities that entertain kids with the chance to learn about God.
Church membership is not always required to participate. VBS is typically a week-long affair that takes place in the summer. Children attend around three to four hours each day. Vacation Bible School teachers are church staff as well as church members volunteering their time. Many of the church members helping out with VBS are parents, too.
Many VBS programs choose one theme for the week. They use this theme to creatively adapt it to teachings from the Bible.
Sample themes kids may experience at Vacation Bible School include:
- Beach party
- Road trip
A typical day at Vacation Bible School may include:
- Arts and crafts
- Bible stories
- Character-building activities
- Puppet shows
- Snack breaks
- Sports activities
- Team lessons
Preschoolers up to high school-age children may benefit the most from Vacation Bible School.
Some also offer free childcare for volunteers who have children too young to attend VBS.
Possible benefits of VBS include the following:
- Children learn about religion through fun, age-appropriate activities.
- Kids meet new friends who share their beliefs.
- Life lessons help every child learn how to be a good person and a friend to others.
- Perfect for younger children to get a feel for camp without having to go away overnight.
- You don’t always have to be a church member to attend VBS.
