In Maker Fun Factory VBS, Group does an awesome job of breaking down the Bible points and teaching in a way that all kids learn - no matter their age or learning style. We've experienced Group's R.E.A.L. approach firsthand, and can tell you that it makes all the difference! So if you're looking for a straightforward overview of what's taught in Maker Fun Factory, and how it's presented, you're in the right place.

In any VBS there will likely be kids who have grown up in the church and can recite more verses than their leaders. And there will likely be kids who come to VBS having never set foot in a church before. To reach both extremes (and everyone in between) takes a lot of intentionality and some great resources. 

We've dug into Group's Maker Fun Factory VBS to find out just how this program balances outreach and discipleship, and we're pretty excited to share what we found!

With all of the decorating you are doing for VBS, why not set up a small area to use as a VBS photo booth?

Standard has created awesome VBS themes for many years, including Deep Sea Discovery, which was a huge hit. The unfortunate news is that Standard will not be putting out a VBS theme in 2017. 

This is a great opportunity to explore some new programs and get your church excited about all the great options in store for 2017. Our VBS experts have put together some recommendations, and we encourage you to take this opportunity to refresh your Children's Ministry and build excitement around these brand-new themes from tried-and-true publishers.

Standard VBS programs were based on a rotation format, but had the flexibility to be used in a classroom format also. To ease the transition, we've hand selected a few 2017 themes that you can use with whichever format you're most comfortable with.

As a former cross-cultural worker, I loved partnering with churches and having the opportunity to personally share with the children about my ministry. Here are a few tips I've gathered over the years to help you get your kids focused on missions.

For most of us, the morning after VBS looks a lot like falling asleep in our breakfast. Completely exhausted from the months of planning and adrenaline-filled VBS week, we make big promises to plan better next year. That's why we've put a quick plan of action together to help you turn those well-intentioned promises into a clear strategy.

What better way to kick off VBS planning and preparation with your team than with a themed meal? Eating together before the meeting allows time for your team to bond with each other and provides the energy needed to plan and prepare. Below are some fun ways to make your meal memorable and theme-focused.

The newest Weekend VBS from Group has us craving chocolate, marshmallows and graham crackers! Camp Out Weekend VBS 2017 is filled with s’mores, tents and campfires, all pointing toward Jesus, the Light of the World. Camp Out VBS is packed with Bible lessons and fun activities for kids. From learning about Jesus, to playing wilderness games, kids will have a blast during their adventure.

Camp Out has five twenty-minute rotations -- music, Bible exploration, wilderness games, Projects-With-a-Purpose and closing campfire. As students visit each station, they will be reminded that Jesus is the Light. During Projects-With-a-Purpose students make special gifts for others in the community or church; these projects allow them to apply what they are learning and to be a light for Jesus to the people around them. Camp Out also includes a twenty-minute Sunday Celebration. This time allows your entire church family to be involved in VBS, as well as providing a great opportunity to invite children and their families to your Sunday service.

Begin preparing for you summer Camp Out VBS 2017 by pre-ordering a Starter Kit and exploring  custom t-shirt designs  for your campers. Also, be sure to check out all of the craft and snack ideas we have on  Pinterest  for Camp Out!
