Do your parishes have VBS?

We've not yet been here a full year so I"ve not yet seen how VBS is done at our parish but it's happening in mid-June.


I actually had a friend ask me today if I would run games.... I was shocked because that is so NOT me.... I emailed her and declined. I told her I would be better in snacks or even crafts. I am at the point in my life where loud and chaotic don't work well for me (and games is loud and chaotic)


We are also using Group... I'm guessing it's the Crocodile theme

My parish does VBS, and the theme is also Crocodile Dock.

May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

<<< Would you happen to know what is the youngest I child can be to participate in VBS?>>>

I think it depends on the program being used, the church offering VBS, their volunteers and facilities.....


I would say the majority of VBS programs start either at preschool or K level....

I agree with Renee, I think it just depends on the particular parish and how many volunteers they have, as to the age limit.
