CAMPERS (and parents!) WHAT TO EXPECT - ARRIVING & LEAVING:


9:00 a.m. DROP OFF

Drop off each day is in the Sanctuary at St Paul’s. The easiest way to get to the Sanctuary is through the double doors on Armory Street. The registration tables will be outside (weather permitting). On the first day, please come 10-15 minutes early to drop off permission slips, pick-up name tags, and find your group before the program starts.


12:00 p.m.  PICK UP

Pick up will be at the child's last center of the day. This means each group will have its own pick-up location. Pick-up locations will be given out on the first day of VBS and posted around the church as well. On the last day, there will be a short program at 11:35 in the Sanctuary starring all of the campers! This is an event not to miss and your parents can take you home right after the program is finished.

 

WHAT TO WEAR:

· Clothes that can get messy or wet – because you just might get messy and wet!

· Sunscreen and bug spray

· Something or everything that matches the Colors of the Day! Each day will have a different theme. This info will be provided by the VBS leaders after registration is complete.

Youth Helpers

Youth who've finished grade 5 through grade 12 can serve as VBS Youth Staff Helpers during St. Paul's VBS program "Once Upon a Mountaintop," June 19-22, 2018. Please note, all Youth Helpers MUST attend a mandatory orientation session in the Chapel on Monday, June 18, regardless of previous experience.

In past years, we've been blessed with an overwhelming response from those wishing to serve as helpers. If we have more applications than we have slots, we will give initial preference to those with previous experience as campers or helpers and will look at remaining applications in the order they are received, so don't delay! The final deadline to apply is May 31, 2018.
