Unfortunately, we do not have early drop off. The Pre-Show Rally begins at 6:00 PM.
What time should I pick up my child?
Please be courteous to our VBS Volunteers. Many of them have a regular 9 – 5 job. We would like to get them home in a timely manner. Please arrive for pick up by 8:45 PM. We do not have extended care available. If you have not arrived by the conclusion on the night we will call you 10 minutes after pick up time.
If you arrive early, please wait until your child(ren) have finished the night before you pick them up from their class.
Who will be taking care of my child?
We are fully committed to providing a safe environment for your child. All of our adult volunteers are background checked & given instruction for their time with the kids.
Can I be with my child at VBS?
Parents are welcome to join the VBS experience as a Kids Camp Volunteer.
We will ask that you go through a background check in order to ensure a safe and safe environment for all children.
What if I lose my pick-up tag?
You will be asked to go to a specified location and asked to show a photo ID at that location that matches the information of the child
Please be patient with our team, with so many kids we want to make sure each child is safe and leaves with the proper adult.
Security will increase due to parents leaving campus after dropping off their children; this is different than our normal Sunday routine; please understand our situation if we take extra steps to ensure the safety of the kids in our program.
What if someone different than myself is picking up my child?
We understand that during events such as VBS that multiple people may be handling the transportation of the children to and from VBS.
The pick-up tag has a date and code that makes it viable and the randomness of the codes each day helps ensure the security for the children.
You may transfer the sticker to another adult who may be picking the child up
we will also accept a photo of the pick-up tag, so you may text the photo to another adult.
We will not accept a phone call of permission.
