Both our downloadable and physical kits are priced below other popular VBSs and allow you to reproduce almost all pieces.
We make life easy for leaders by giving you everything you need without overwhelming complexity.
Participating children will grow in their Catholic faith and relationship with Jesus.
You’ll be humming along to top-notch, kid-friendly music from Oregon Catholic Press that won’t drive adults crazy.
With shelter-in-place orders and uncertainty ahead, leaders like you are trying to figure out how Vacation Bible School may or may not fit in this year. Perhaps ironically, this may be one of the most important years in recent memory to offer a VBS experience.
We have made some additions to our VBS themes to address the unique challenges:
A free guide with detailed guidelines for planning and adapting your VBS approach this year, with coronavirus social distancing restrictions and concerns.
Ideas for engaging games that can be played over Zoom or other video conferencing apps (if necessary).
We have recorded demonstration videos for our newest theme Peace Lab for some of the "Creative Response" crafts and activities. You will be able to share them with your participants or use them as examples to create your own.
If you are planning or considering a virtual VBS experience this year, note that our licenses give you permission to share the download links with all of your leaders so they can prepare from home. You can also share individual electronic files with your participants, although we recommend having families pick up and bring home a bag/box of materials before the VBS begins. You are allowed to stream sing-along or other videos over video conference or make them available directly to your participants. Color booklets, audio CDs, and MP3 download cards still must be purchased separately for use by individual children/families. Please let us know if you have questions.
Through learning how to resolve conflicts and figuring out ways to help others, children will learn how to be peacemakers in this VBS curriculum. The five Bible stories will lead children on an awesome adventure through the Bible, equipping them to follow Jesus as compassionate peacemakers.
Peace Lab is a Bible and activity-based learning experience with tracks for grades K-5 and preschoolers ages 4-5 (and added options for grades 6-8).
Music, featuring Jesse Manibusan, includes: “Power of Peace” • “Peace Maker” • “God Is Bigger” • “Walking the Ways of Peace” • “Our God Is Good” • “Give Us Your Peace” • “Go Make a Difference"
Have you wondered if your parish should start a Vacation Bible School? Are you not quite sure what it entails or how to get started? Or are you a veteran who wonders if your VBS can do more for your parish?
This free guide will help you learn how VBSs work and give you a broader perspective on their value to your community. It particularly focuses on the way a VBS can be used to evangelize parents and invite them to become active members of your parish.
