Summer Adventure
 
 
 
 
Summer Adventure is our Vacation Bible School program for children in preschool-5th grade. 
This week long program focuses on building a foundational understanding of biblical truths for these young children, and we do it through interactive learning and play!  This is one of the absolute highlight experiences for kids in this community that takes place here in our church!
SUMMER ADVENTURE 2021
Summer Adventure is back!!!
 
After two years of unexpected circumstances that kept us from having our Summer Adventure VBS program in person, we’re excited to be having this amazing program available to kids in our community.  We’re going to do all that we can to create a safe space so that all who participate can enjoy the adventure together!
 
This summer, we’re going on an amazing journey to discover God’s truth that is evident throughout the bible… that you are loved.  You are treasured and priceless to God!
  • WHO:  All kids in the community from PreK – 5th grade
  • WHEN:  Monday, June 14th – Friday, June 18th
      • Each day will go from 8:30am – 11:30am.  
  • COST:   FREE!!!
      • No fee  to learn about Jesus! 
      • However, we do encourage all who are able to donate to give at least a $15 donation for the week per child to help cover Summer Adventure supplies.
      • All who do give will receive the “Treasured” t-shirt as a thank you for your gift.
  • SIGN-UP: All children must register in advance
      • Out of an abundance of caution, we have lowered our max capacity for registrations to allow for better distancing strategies during the Summer Adventure program.  This is for the safety of both the children and volunteers.
      • We are expecting to fill up, so we are also not accepting last minute or “day of” registrations.  Please sign-up in advance while spaces are available
Differences to expect for a post-covid program:
 
     We will do all within our power to create a safe space for all kids and volunteers at Summer Adventure.  Valley Covenant Preschool’s director, Jill Huber, is helping us do this well.  Between her experience this year running a preschool with safe practices, as well as her experience on the Meridian #223 board of Education and the changes in the local schools, we will be making adjustments to how we run the program to reflect safe practices.
 
     Masks will be required for all kids and volunteers in the same way they would be required at the schools.  Healthy distancing practices and sanitation will be observed throughout the program, and we will have limited contact drop off and pick up each day.  Kids and volunteers will also be temperature checked upon arrival each day.
 
     More adjustments are being made as we plan and we will be sure to communicate all you need to know before the week begins.  Feel free to contact us with any questions!
Interested in Volunteering?
 
     Summer Adventure is only possible because of the many volunteers that give their time to make it happen!  We are looking for volunteers that are willing to be a crew leader, station helper, photographer, song leader, and more!  
 
     All volunteers will receive a free volunteer staff t-shirt for their help!  Volunteers will arrive half hour early and stay about 20 minutes late for our volunteer meetings each day, and we have had plenty of parents help as volunteers in the past that have brought their kids to these meetings. 
 
     Adult volunteers (18+) will need to submit a criminal background check and student volunteers will need to have a parent or legal guardian sign a permission form and liability waiver.  We are also more than happy to sign for volunteer hours for all our Jr. or Sr. High students that would like credit for them!
 
     All volunteers will be required to read through the training materials in advance and come to the brief training meeting if possible.
 
     Volunteer work is also needed the week before Summer Adventure for anyone that wants to help with set design or decorating the church.
 
     If you are interested, please contact Pastor Chuck, our preschool director Jill Huber or stop by the Valley Covenant Church office.
