Volunteer at VBS

VBS is a team effort in which Ewalu counselors, Zion volunteers, parents, and campers serve together to make the program exciting and enriching.  To make it all work, we need the help of willing volunteers: 

  • Teachers to plan and staff the morning Preschool program
  • Junior High and High School age helpers (Kool Aides) for Preschool and Day Camp
  • Adults to help plan the Day Camp afternoon program, participate in bible study, lead craft projects, prepare snacks for hungry children and meals for hungry counselors, and coordinate the offsite field trip for the rising 5th and 6th graders 

Monetary gifts and donations of snacks and supplies are another way that you can help.  Did you know that VBS nearly pays for itself because of the generous contributions of our donors?  

Please consider supporting VBS this year with the gift of your time or a contribution.  For more information, contact Pam Cantrell at 319-338-0944, pam@zionlutheran-ic.org.
