What if my child has an allergy or specific medical need?

Please make sure to include that information as you register and we will make your child’s crew leader is aware so that they are given the proper care.

Check-in, Drop-off, & Pick-up

How do I check my child into VBS?

We ask that each evening, you check in your child at the Check-In Station located in the Lobby and escort them to their designated drop off location.

What is the check-in process like?

Enter the phone number you used on the registration form into the computer, the computer will prompt you through the rest of the process and you will receive a tag for your child to wear. You will also receive a unique tag that is required to pick up the child.

How do I register my child on site if they are not already registered online?

Just visit our registration table and we’d be happy to guide you through the registration process. The following day, you will be able to check in through our computer system.

How do I check out my child?

Simply present your pick up tag to your child's crew leader in the designated drop-off/pick-up room.

What do I do if I lose/forget/misplace my child’s matching tag for pick up?

No problem – please bring your photo ID with you and come to the registration table. Our team will be happy to print out a new tag for you, but we just ask that you have your photo ID for verification.

What if someone else will be picking up my child?

You will need to pass on your duplicate tags to the person picking up your child. That person must also be on the designated pickup list. If you are not going to be able to physically pass these tags onto that person, you can leave them with our registration team with the designated person’s name. Then the person picking your child up must present a photo ID to receive the tags.

What if I need to take my child out of VBS early?

Please go to the check-in area and notify the registration team. One of our team will bring your child to you to check out with your matching tags.

Other Questions

Can I stay on campus during VBS?
