2020 VBS will be Virtual! The team at GO! Curriculum has designed a 3-day backyard VBS that is custom made for churches and families during the COVID19 shutdown. We have thought through every aspect of the VBS experience and made it so user friendly that any family can easily do it at home. With minimal preparation, easy to follow instructions, and a video that leads kids step-by-step through each day, BOLT VBS is the perfect quarantine-friendly solution for your church or family. After months of virtual learning, many kids are already experiencing screen-fatigue. With that in mind, BOLT has struck the perfect balance between video content and in-person games and activities. TO REGISTER: EMAIL: firstname.lastname@example.org and say you would like to participate. Please include a mailing address so we can mail you an information packet which will include the link to the parent portal. You may do this VBS at your pace and convenience. 3 days in a row, 1 day a week...however you would
