WAVES OF GRATITUDE
A Vacation Bible School program created by the United Thank Offering
How It Works
The United Thank Offering (UTO) Board and Staff are pleased to present you with this free program focused on water and gratitude. This Camp contains 5 days of VBS programming and materials for faith formation leaders. Every day will have a gratitude-based theme and an accompanying Bible story. Each Bible story and theme will get connected with a popular children’s story to help build connections. In addition, every day has 4 separate activities to engage participants: water activity, music and movement activity, a craft, and a STEAM project.
