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 Cave Quest-Following Jesus, the Light of the World. The VBS camp will run Monday through Friday on July 25 – July 29. Volunteers need to be here from 8:30am – 1pm. 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 on the back of this document 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.
Crew Leader A crew leader is assigned a group of children (usually 7 – 8 children) ranging in age from 5- 10 years old. As a crew leader you guide the kids on their daily adventure taking them from station to station. At each station, a station leader will identify the activity to take place and provide directions. You will assist the crew members in completing the activity. A crew leader should love working with kids and be enthusiastic. You will want to encourage your crew members to participate in the various station activities. You need to commit to being at the camp July 25-July 29 from 8:30am to 1pm (8am on Monday) and attend a training session. You will also be assisting in setting things up in the morning prior to the start of camp and putting things away and cleaning up at the end of camp each day. Additionally at the end of the day you will attend a review session to go over activities for the following day.
Assistant Crew Leader Assisting the Family Leader in performing the duties listed above
Station Leader Assistant There are 8 activity areas in our camp. A Station Leader Assistant would work at a single station and help as needed with the activity completed in that station. For example, in the Games area you would take direction from the Games Station Leader and help set up the materials needed for the game, demonstrate the game, referee in the game, participate in the game, etc.
Adult Volunteers (only)
