Gadgets and Gizmos Camp Frequently Asked Questions

What does it cost?  $10.00 recommended donation per child, $30.00 maximum per family.  Cash or check (checks made out to: New Hope) can be given on the opening night of VBS Camp.  Donations can also be dropped off at the church office.

When can I arrive?  Doors will be open 15 minutes prior to the start of VBS Camp each day.

Can my child be in a small group with their friend?  Yes, depending on age.  Please note that question in the online registration process.

How will you keep my child safe?  All volunteers receive background checks and training prior to serving.  Children will receive a wristband as will the parent with a matching number.  The children will ONLY be dismissed to the parent with the matching number.

Can I come if I didn’t pre-register or bring someone with me who didn’t pre-register?  Yes.  There will be a limited amount of walk-ins available on the day of the event.  

What should my child wear to VBS Camp?  Please come in comfy clothes and comfy shoes – VBS Camp is full of fun, mess, running, jumping … all the kid things!  If you purchase a Gadgets and Gizmos shirt, we would love to see your child attend in that!
