July 30 – August 3, 2018    •    9:00 am – 12:30 pm

Spark Imagination With Faith-Building Fun!
Venture onto an uncharted island where kids survive and thrive. Each day at Shipwrecked VBS, kids travel through field-tested rotations that reinforce relevant Bible Points and immerse kids in new adventures.

Send your kids on an impacting island adventure!
At Shipwrecked VBS, kids discover how Jesus rescues us through life’s storms. Shipwrecked is filled with incredible Bible-learning experiences kids see, hear, touch, and even taste! Imagination Station, team-building games, cool Bible songs, and tasty treats are just a few of the standout activities that help faith flow into real life.

Plus, we’ll help kids discover how to see evidence of God in everyday life—something we call God Sightings. Get ready to hear that phrase a lot! Your kids will also participate in a hands-on mission project!

Experiencing God’s Word
At Shipwrecked VBS, one memorable Bible Point is reinforced throughout each station, each day—making it easy to apply long after VBS is over.  Featuring Bible Memory Buddies that are makers, too!

  • Want to bring some joy to others this summer

Interested in a volunteer opportunity this summer? Saint Gregory the Great Vacation Bible School day camp is a terrific time to help and interact with the younger children of our parish. Our VBS is loaded with fun-filled activities that bring kids closer to God. Through the different activities – singing, science gizmo/crafts, games, snacks, bible story theatre – the children learn what the Bible point of the day is and how they can live it out in their life.

The theme for this year’s camp is Shipwrecked: Rescued by Jesus. The VBS camp will run Monday through Friday on July 30 – August 3.  Volunteers need to be here from 8:30 am – 1:00 pm. On Friday the camp will conclude with a Mass that starts at noon.

We cannot put this camp on without volunteers – a lot of volunteers. Work begins months before with planning, designing and assembling set decorations, making signs, registering campers, training, etc. Would you like to play a role in this year’s camp? You are awarded service hours for the time that you volunteer at the VBS camp. Review the volunteer opportunities and let us know what you would be interested in. Check your dates to make sure you can commit. Please contact us for further information.
