VANDENBERG AIR FORCE BASE, Calif. --
The 30th Space Wing Chapel is scheduled to host this summer's Vacation Bible School program at Chapel 1 (Building 16200) from 9 a.m. to noon June 13 - 17.
Participation is free for children ages three to 12 during Vandenberg's "Inside out and Upside Down on Main Street" themed VBS program.
The "Inside out and Upside Down on Main Street" program is designed to teach children about the virtues of gratitude, forgiveness, compassion, grace and faithfulness.
Currently, more than 211 children have registered to attend the program and 50 people have volunteered from the Vandenberg community to assist.
"We already have surpassed the amount of children registered last year, or any of the previous years that I am aware of," said Brandie Lawrence, Vandenberg's VBS coordinator.
Four adults and three teenage volunteers are still needed to assist with the program's many scheduled activities.
"We have a 'Fun Factory' craft station that works with fine motor skills and group projects, 'Firehouse Fitness' games that keep the children active and promotes health, and 'Brown Bag Bistro' snack station where kids will enjoy a healthy treat," Ms. Lawrence said.
Other activities will include skits, music, dance and an opportunity for children to direct questions to the base chaplains.
