When will registration open?

Virtual VBS Child Registration:  Registration is open now.

Registration will close no later than Monday, June 1 to allow time to prepare for VBS.

My child would like to be placed in the same small group with their friend. How do I request this?

One friend request of the same age/grade can be indicated on the on-line registration form, as follows:
1. Both children must be registered using the on-line registration form and
2. They must request each other on their form.

Please understand that we cannot guarantee same-small group placement. We will make every effort to place your child with the friend request submitted on their form, but there is no guarantee. Friend requests can not be made on the day of camp, due to the number of children participating in Virtual VBS. For more information, please contact Kids Ministry at kids@ucumc.net.

How will I know which class my child has been assigned to?

This information, as well as other important details will be in your Virtual VBS Supply box..

We never want cost to be the reason a child does not participate, so if cost would be a hindrance for you, please don’t hesitate to talk with us. Scholarships are available. kids@ucumc.net

No, we do not offer t-shirts for Virtual VBS.
