Registration Link

Our theme this year is Wondrous Waters. Camp will run from 8:30 AM – 12:30 PM.

Part of what makes our VBS so special is that it’s an inter-generational experience! We’re always looking for adult volunteers to teach a craft, lead a game, whip up a snack, or play some music.

Email familyministries@stpaulsbenicia.org if you have questions or would like to volunteer.
