It's still September, but if you're like me (type A), planning is already happening. I'm sure many of you have started thinking through ideas for next summer. Your list might look something like this:
- Purchase VBS JumpStart Kit
- Think through VBS leaders for 2014
- Ask ______ if she can help with decorating.
- Think through follow-up for VBS (Is there something we could do to continue the momentum after VBS?)
- When should we start promoting camp this year?
- Is there a VBS Preview Event I can attend this year?
Actually, I'm 100% sure your list looks a lot longer! We know that you love VBS, and we want to make sure you know about two other resources from LifeWay Kids that can help you reach the kids in your community. These are both great resources that along with VBS will make planning your entire summer easier!
Have you ever taken your kids to camp before? There is nothing like taking your kids off for a week of dedicated time with God. It's a great platform for helping set the foundation for spiritual milestones in lives of your kids. If you've checked out CentriKid in the past and we weren't in your area, make sure you check again! CentriKid is always growing into new areas!
Zip is a great way to continue the momentum after VBS is over. Zip for Kids is an event resource that can be customized to match the DNA of your church and community. If you're looking to do day camp or sports camp or even your own one-of-a-kind event for preschoolers and kids, you'll want to check out Zip. You can actually head over to the site and check out all the track time options, and even sign up to see a preview! Here's a quick video to give you an idea of what Zip is all about:
We can't wait to see how you use Zip for Kids this summer along with CentriKid Camps and, of course, VBS! I've already heard from several of you over on our LifeWay VBS Facebook page that you are well into planning. What have you done so far?
