*Note: the dates for VBS conflict with our Teen ACTS retreat, please be aware if attending Teen ACTS, you will not be present for the final day of VBS

there is no fee for VBS Prep Week!


All Teen Volunteers must register by Wednesday, July 3rd; no volunteers will be accepted after that date. 



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 Wednesday, July 3rd from 12-1pm and Sunday, July 7th 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 9 service hours. During VBS, teens can earn up to 3.5 hours Monday - Thursday and 4.5 hours on Friday (with the extra hour of clean up), for a total of 18.5 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.
