What is Traveling VBS?
Traveling VBS is a five day VBS Style program that Camp Dixie can bring to your Congregation! The mission of Traveling VBS is to partner with congregations to lead a congregation-based five day Vacation Bible School program is for children and enables participants to experience God's Grace, Love, and Guidance. This is done through hands-on Bible Study, devotions, interaction with energetic camp staff, skits, games, and other camp related activities. The church shapes the lives of young Christians in many ways. Shaping those lives to live in God's love is our most important work. Worship, study, arts, crafts, and recreation are all designed to make God's love come alive for your children.
Camp Dixie Traveling VBS sessions are Monday through Friday. We will arrive at your congregation on Sunday night before the first day. A typical session operates from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm Monday through Thursday, and 9:00 am to Noon on Friday.
The Traveling VBS team will consist up to five college-aged young adults who have been trained in all aspects of running the Traveling VBS program. All Camp Dixie staff members will be certified in First Aid and CPR.
Camp Dixie Traveling VBS is designed for children who are entering the 1st through 6th grade. (Children who have already had the experience of a full day of school)
The daily program includes music, Bible Study, arts and crafts, devotions, and a variety of recreational activities. Whenever feasible, activities are held outside (heat is generally NOT an excuse to stay inside.) The emphasis of Traveling VBS is learning through doing and living - rather than just words.
