Dear VBS Families,

It is with pleasure that we are offering the fourth annual Vacation Bible school this summer! The dates for Bethany’s VBS are: July 8 – 11th, 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.  We will have activities in science, games, arts/crafts, and we will discuss the earth, how to care for it, as well as have some messy fun along the way!

Each day there will be new activities and themes including a WATER DAY so kids will be asked to wear swimsuits on that day (weather permitting).  Please note this year we are extending our hours and please provide your child each day with a sack lunch.

Registration is open to ages 4 (must be fully potty-trained and prefer some Pre-K experience) – entering 5th Grade. We are expecting a great turnout this year so we encourage your family to register early. Registration is capped at 50 kids.

Early registration runs through May 26. The early registration cost is $40 per child, $85 for family of 3+ children. Registration continues at $45 per child, capping at $90. Registration includes a camp t-shirt, daily snack, and covers costs of materials.  Scholarships are available. After July 1st we cannot guarantee registration since we will need to plan volunteers and supplies accordingly. We also appreciate our volunteers and if you are able to volunteer 3 or 4 of the days we will wave one child’s registration fees. Please mark on registration form.

For more information, you can contact Allison Pringle at If you would like to volunteer during VBS we also would love parents, grandparents and any people wanting an enriching, fun, and spirited time!

Thank you,
Allison Pringle
