V.B.S. (Summer Catechesis Program)

June 22nd – June 26th
8:30 am to 12:00 pm

Listen up! Dig deep! Jesus had a lot to say. And those who listened discovered a treasure in his words.

 

Digging for Treasure is a fun-filled, Bible-based learning experience focused on uncovering the stories Jesus told, also known as parables. Children will sing songs, play games, make crafts, eat snacks, and do other activities, all designed to help children discover amazing treasures in the parables.

Our VBS participants aged Kindergarten - Grade 6:
  • Begin at 8:30 am in the school cafetorium.
  • Experience cool crafts, fun games, upbeat music, hands-on activities and snacks
  • Are joined by family and friends in the school cafetorium at 12:00 noon for pick-up.

 

 Preschool Experience: We are revamping our VBS to provide the best experience for our youngest participants.
  • We will open a Preschool Session for 25 youth provided we have 2 adults in the room in addition to our wonderful teen volunteers. If we have more adult volunteers, we will open a second room as needed.
  • Participants will need to be 4 years old on or before September 1, 2020 (ie eligible for voluntary Pre-Kindergarten during 2020-2021 school year)
  • All participants will need to be potty trained.
  • PreK4 youth will meet in their room on the first day and then join our other VBS participants in the cafetorium in the morning and afternoon.

Before/Aftercare

The parish offers a Summer Program from June 8th through July 31st from 7 AM to 6 PM weekdays. The rate is $4 per hour per child. For students not registered at Ascension Catholic School there is a $50 deposit per child attending which can be used towards the fee or will be refunded.

During VBS week, Summer Program employees bring youth over to the VBS activity in the morning and pick them up for Summer Care afterwards. Be sure to pack a lunch, drink and snacks for the afternoon! If you bring your child to VBS first, you can leave the lunch with our VBS volunteers and it will get over to the Summer Program.
