Sensory Station

Relax and refocus in a specially designed space where kids with special sensory needs can experience an oasis of calm in the busy world of VBS!

A Single Point at Every Site!

Groups of kids (crews) will move from place to place during each session, learning that God is with them through Bible stories, crafts and science, service projects, snacks and games, activities and more. From opening to closing, kids will hear the same message at every site, helping them understand and remember each daily theme.

What’s the best way to do VBS? The way that works for you!

Deep Sea Discovery is designed for 5 sessions, where kids are divided into crews—but it’s not the only way! The Director’s Guide features alternative ways to design your program, such as family-based, classroom-based, or 10-day VBS.
