Vacation Bible Schools (VBS) are generally 1 week (3-5 day) programs put on by local faith-based churches and schools. There is always a “theme”. Check back often as more VBS camps get added in spring!
We will post on our website drlc.org information on how to pick up craft and activity bags prior to the week of VBS for each participant based on numbers of attendees in the past.
While this expense will be covered by the church, donations are greatly appreciated.
The Theme is Weird Animals!
