Vacation Bible School (VBS) is a 4 day long summer camp for kids entering kindergarten through 5th grade in fall 2014. VBS takes place every year at Mariners Church on the Irvine Campus, with over 2,000 kids and 1000 volunteers in attendance. We will also be having a second VBS at Mariners Church Ocean Hills.

Each campus will be transformed as kids come and experience SHIPWRECK ISLAND.  Join us at our ADVENTUROUS summer camp as we discover the ultimate treasure.

It’ll be an exciting week of games, drama, crafts, fun surprises and live music. We offer childcare and a preschool program (for a fee) for VBS volunteers who volunteer during the entire VBS week. Find out more about volunteering.


What will kids experience at VBS?
Kids are assigned to groups within the same grade and each group has a “guide” that leads them through the activities each day. During the opening program, kids experience amazing live music and drama in the Worship Center. Next they attend various events or “stations” around campus with their assigned group and guide, including crafts, recreation on the lawn, a fun one-day water day, Bible stories and snacks. At the completion of the day, groups meet together again in the Worship Center for more music and drama before the closing prayer is given and the day concludes.
