everything be conducted outdoors?
major activities will be held on our front patio, sectioned off segments of the
parking lot and the entire backyard. The only exception is using the indoor
restrooms and cooling off in the lobby if kids get overheated.
require masking for children and adults during VBS?
follow CDC guidelines on this. Vaccinated individuals do not need to wear masks
outdoors. Non-vaccinated individuals (adults or teens) will be encouraged to
wear masks when social distancing isn't possible. We will not require
masks for children. If you as the parent would like your child to wear a
mask the entire time, you can let us know and we will enforce it to the best of
our ability. Here is an article you might find helpful about
outdoor masking and children.

In order to
cut out the sharing of germs via food handling, we will not have a dedicated
snack session like years past. We will however, have water stations readily

Can my child
come to VBS if they are younger than 4 years old?
years and younger are welcome if a parent can stay with them.

needs intermittent help with the child. The reason we usually only take 4
and up is because we don't have the manpower to handle separation anxiety and
or potty training.
there an Afternoon Childcare Program?
We feel it
is wise to avoid extended time indoors with a group of children and teens. Our
traditional afternoon program entails a lot of interaction with one another due
to serving lunch, playing board games, making crafts and being in close
proximity in general. We hope the afternoon program can return next year.
