Greetings, VBS Family!

We are so excited to announce that The Church of the Nativity will be holding

VBS 2021 the week of August 16-20  from 9am to 11:30am, for ages 4 years thru 5th grade.  All activities will be outdoors.  We will have a MAIN STAGE AREA where station leaders will rotate through with exciting activities.  As usual there will be Bible Stories, Music, Science, Games and snacks.  Everything will be prepackaged and ready for each crew which will have a spot in the grove socially distanced from other crews.

Government and Diocesan Covid-19 compliance will be maintained for the safety of all participants and staff.  In order to minimize interaction, we will meet outside as we have for outdoor Masses in the Grove and will also utilize the parking lot.  We will not be mixing the crews.  Masks will not be required, but will remain optional for any participants who choose to wear one. Teen or family member Crew Leaders will remain with the specific crew each day, minimizing interactions in a manner consistent with CDC guidelines. A brief health check questionnaire will be required for each participant, each day, requiring parents to answer a few basic questions concerning any potential symptoms of illness. Should any participant or volunteer develop symptoms which are even possibly Covid-19 related, that participant or volunteer will not be able to return to the VBS camp for the remainder of the week, and parents of all other participants who were within the same Crew will be notified; ongoing participation from other members of the same Crew may be impacted based on any Crew Member interactions with participants exhibiting symptoms of Covid-19.

The adult/teen leader in each family crew does not have to pay for participation.

Would you like to receive a VBS kit for home instead?  Let us know!

We have opportunities for high school student volunteers in addition to family volunteers, who may also assist in gathering and distributing materials, assisting with station rotations, and set-up. 

If you were signed up last year that means you get preference for this year’s VBS. 

Participation fee is only required for each child 4 years - 5th grade.  Reply to SueH@NativityChurchNJ.org with any questions.
