Registration Fee: $20 for VBS will go toward t-shirt and snacks

there is no fee for VBS Prep Week!


Important Info: Teens do not have to help during Prep Week in order to volunteer for VBS, but every teen MUST attend a MANDATORY Training Session in order to be a volunteer during VBS! The training session is offered on Thursday of Prep Week from 12-1pm and Sunday before VBS from 3:45-4:45pm. Location for each session will be in New Legacy.

On Friday, the last day of VBS, we ask that our volunteers stay until 1:00pm to help us clean and take down the decorations in the gym and classrooms. 

Service Hours: Teens will be asked to sign in every day, staff will use the attendance sheet to keep track of service hours. During Prep Week, up to 3 service hours are available each day, for a possible total of 15 service hours. During VBS, teens can earn up to 4 hours Monday - Thursday and 5 hours on Friday (with the extra hour of clean up), for a total of 21 hours. Teens must bring their own forms and service hour logs to receive credit for service hours. The only exception is if a teen's school or organization uses an online form. In this case, use as the contact email address.
