What does an online VBS look like?









Why did you change the theme and date?
We wanted to have a theme that spoke to the needs of children for this time. We want all kids to be encouraged and equipped for what is going on in the world, knowing that God is still present even in the midst of this season! With this in mind, we changed the date because we needed to make sure we would have enough time to prepare a virtual camp with the same standards as our normal summer camps.

What is the new theme?
This year we will be talking about God's Promises. The Bible constantly tells us to remember and reflect on "Who God is" and "What He has done". God knew that we would forget this and would need to remember to build our lives on Him to remain steadfast through every season. Therefore, this week, children will be going through stories in the Bible that remind us of our wonderful Heavenly Father who never changes. We will learn that we can trust God because He is Faithful, Good, our Savior, Provider, and our Rock.

What will be included in my child's bag?
Your child's bag will include all the supplies needed for the week including crafts, non-perishable snacks, and games/activities. All the lessons and instructions will be through our online, virtual format.

How will I access the Online Program?
We will email you a link and access code to our virtual site. The Sunday before VBS begins, you will be able to login and access our Parent Corner and Sunday Lesson which will help prepare kids and families for this week of fun. The rest of our curriculum will go live Monday morning at 9:00 am.

How have the supplies been prepared and assembled?
We have ensured that all supplies you are receiving have been prepared with the utmost cleanliness and following the CDC guidelines.

When will the bag pickup be?
Because bag pickups will be conducted in a drive-thru format and abide by social distancing measures, we will split up the pick-up and dates by last name. You will receive your time slot for pickup via email.

Can I have the supplies shipped to me instead of picking them up?
Yes! On our form you can pay to have the bag shipped to you. This must be done before June 7th to ensure the bags arrive in time.

Can I pick up bags for another family?
You may only pick up a bag for another family IF they are already registered and if we have prior emailed confirmation. Please have the family email us their name and child(ren)'s name as well as the name of the family they give authorization to pick up their bag

Can Adults Volunteer?
Since our format is fully online, we will not have positions to volunteer the week of VBS but we do need help preparing for this camp. If you are interested in volunteering on one of our prep teams, please email us at vbs@therockca.com

Is there an option for my Middle Schooler and/or High Schooler?
Although we will not be offering our VIP program this year for middle schoolers, we're excited to announce that we are offering a youth (MS and HS) discipleship beginning soon. This online discipleship will equip students in their faith and teach them how to practically and consistently follow Jesus. More details to come! Please email aaronh@therockca.com for any related questions.
