More Information about this VBS

The Theme
Attention! You’re in the Army now! It’s war out there, and the purpose of BOOT Camp is to train, prepare and equip all of our “little soldiers” to stand their ground and fight the good fight in the ageless battle between good and evil. Children will be enlisted in VBS as “Privates,” marching around your campus to cadences and songs, saluting one another, and preparing to be good soldiers for Christ. Your VBS workers will be Staff Sergeants, Sergeants First Class, and Master Sergeants. By the time BOOT Camp is over, the children will be prepared not only to defend themselves by using God’s armor, but also to advance on the enemy by practicing evangelism techniques they’ve learned. Yes, sir! This will be one fun VBS!

The Objective
The objective of BOOT Camp is to get children into the mindset that we are all involved in the war between God and Satan and that there can be no neutrality. We must all chose to be on God’s side and actively fight the battles against evil by standing for and spreading the Word of God both at home and in “enemy territory.”

A Dual Focus
B. O. O. T. Camp stands for “Biblical Outlook and Outreach Training.” In other words, BOOT Camp is designed to help children to think Biblically AND to reach out with God’s Word to unbelievers. This dual approach makes BOOT Camp an excellent teaching tool, both for believers and unbelievers.
Bible Outlook Lessons
For developing a Biblical world view, a complete set of “Bible Outlook Lessons” are provided to help children understand the war, the Gospel, and how we can join in the battle.
Tactical Outreach Training
Additionally, BOOT Camp includes a full set of Bible OUTREACH Lessons which are designed to train children in basic evangelism techniques. These lessons are meant to encourage children to go on the offensive and specifically target people to share the gospel with.

The Gospel
One of the prime objectives of BOOT Camp is to share the gospel of Jesus Christ with children and their families. Through the use of Bible lessons, gospel tracts, and discipleship materials which can all be printed from the BOOT Camp materials, you can share the gospel with all of the children in your VBS program.
One effective method for sharing the gospel with the children is the BOOT Camp drama skits (found in the Drama Kit from the VBS materials) during opening and closing assemblies each day. During the five days of VBS, Sgt. Willgo, our main drama character, will constantly share the gospel with a sense of urgency, and of course, with a great deal of fun. The BOOT Camp drama skits allow you to share the gospel on EVERY DAY OF VBS, making BOOT Camp a very evangelical program.

NIV and King James Bible References
Any VBS Resource Kit which contains Scripture verses written out is available in TWO Bible versions; either the New International Version (NIV) or the King James Version (KJV). When printing resource kits which contain Scripture verses, simply select which version you prefer to use and print it.

Five Days, Three Hours per Day
Although you may alter the time frame in which this VBS program operates in your church, it is designed to run for five days, running for three hours or more each day. The daily three-hour running time allows this VBS to be done either in the daytime or in the evening. Extending the daily running time beyond three hours is possible, although we do not recommend running this program in less than three hours per day, as the children will not be able to participate in all the VBS activities in less than three hours per day. Tools for setting up a daily operating schedule are found in the Director's Guidebook.

The Six VBS Age Groups
This VBS program provides age-targeted teaching at three levels. This enables you to teach each age of kids a lesson which they can understand and which challenges them. Each age group will participate in VBS activities separately on a rotation schedule, and each group will have adult Age Group Leaders (or Staff Sergeants) who will stay with each group, befriending children, attending to their needs, and maintaining order. For easy identification, and for fun, each age group is assigned a specific color and designation (called a “company”) to help identify them:

Alpha Company (Preschoolers)
Color: Orange
Bravo Company (Kindergartners)
Color: Yellow
Charlie Company (First Graders)
Color: Purple
Delta Company (Second Graders)
Color: Red
Echo Company (Third Graders)
Color: Green
Foxtrot Company (4th & 5th Graders)
Color: Blue
