Registration is now open for the Traer Ecumenical Vacation Bible School! Join us Aug. 4-7 at St. Paul Catholic Church for a Jungle Safari! Come join the fun as kids, ages 4 years through 5th grade, get to know what's so great about God, EXPLORE the nature of God, and SERVE God in practical ways. Kids will participate in the excitement of Toucan Jam, experience God's Word at Zip Line Bible Time, take part in service projects at Slug-a-Bug Swamp, and explore through crafts, snacks, and games at Lizards Leap. Kids at Jungle Safari will join a local mission effort to help our community through penny wars for CHAT (Christian Hands Around Traer), collect school supplies for North Tama, collect items for the Food Pantry, and a service project for Sunrise Hill Care Center.
Jungle Safari is for kids from age 4 to the completion of 5th grade, and will run from 8:45 am to 12:15 pm, with lunch served each day. The cost for VBS is $8 per child or $20 per family (scholarships available upon request) if paid by June 25, or if received after June 25, $10 per child & $25 per family. After June 25, a child may not be guaranteed a t-shirt. Registration forms are available at each church or at the Traer Library.
