Health & Cleanliness  

Please keep your child home if he/she experiences an elevated temperature within 24 hours of the event, has discharge of green or yellow mucus, complains of a stomachache or other sick feelings, has diarrhea or is vomiting, or has any other symptoms of a communicable, contagious illness. Please monitor your child’s health as well as the health of others living in your household.



When is payment due?  Full payment is due at the time of registration.

Do you offer any discounts? We offer a $5 per-child discount until May 3. Have multiple children? Use code MULTI10 to receive an extra discount for each child. Registered volunteers will also receive a discount code in their confirmation email, so be sure to register as a volunteer first! 

Can my child attend if they need special accommodations? Yes, based on the child’s needs and the resources we have, we will pursue a conversation with you to make sure that we can offer an environment that meets your child’s needs. You may choose to complete this form if you wish to register a child who needs special accommodations.

Can I request my child be grouped with a friend? We are happy to receive friend requests! While we will do our best to honor those requests, we are unable to guarantee any specific placement. Please note that students will first be placed in groups based on their grade level.

When do I pick-up t-shirts? T-shirt & registration packet pickup will be on Sunday, July 14 from 8:15 am- 12:30 pm. at the Village Chuch of Bartlett. 

Where do I drop-off my child during the week of VBS? Great question! Dropoff is from 8:45-9:00 a.m. each day. Please walk your child into the church building. Look for a banner that matches the group name on your child’s registration packet. You will receive a personalized pick-up tag from your child’s leader that you will be required to return when you pick your child up that afternoon.

How do I pick-up my child? You will pick up your child at the same place you dropped him/her off. Return to your child’s group banner at noon with the pick-up tag you received that morning. To ensure the safety of all children, pick-up tags must be returned to the group leader before a student can be allowed to leave.

What should my child wear? Students should wear the provided VBS t-shirt each day. 

What should my child bring?  A labeled water bottle, a layer of sunscreen, and a spirit of adventure! 

What if my child loses a water bottle….or something else?  There is a lost and found table in the church foyer. To minimize this problem, please label your child’s water bottle and any other personal items with his/her first and last name.

What if my child has food allergies? We care about your child’s safety! Village Church VBS is a nut-free event. Please share any food allergies when you register and a VBS volunteer will reach out to you so that we can create a safe snack plan. In the event that we cannot attend to your child’s allergies adequately, you may be asked to provide your own snack.

What safety policies do you have in place? We strictly enforce a two-person policy, meaning that at least two volunteers are with a student at all times. Adults are not permitted to enter any restroom while in use by a student. We also require background checks for each adult volunteer and provide mandatory training for all volunteers.

I have more questions! Who can I talk to? If you are looking for more information feel free to email Erica Smith at
