Our church used Group Publishing’s “Cave Quest” VBS curriculum this summer.  Bible Quests (story) was located in our fellowship hall – and they also traveled outside the front entrance of the church a few nights and used a classroom off the fellowship hall.  This was definitely the space that changed the most throughout the week.  The story crew changed the decor each evening to match that night’s story.  I’ve linked below some of the photos to specific projects.  Feel free to holler if you have any more questions!

Sorry for the poor quality of these pictures – a lot of them are from my cell phone {I’m not sure why my sleep-deprived VBS directing self wasn’t more concerned with taking good pictures! hahaha}.

I’ve added links for each of the items that have step-by-step tutorials, as well as the supplies needed for each item.  *If you’re ordering supplies online, make sure to click through Ebates to get cash back!

The kids got to enter a dark cave to hear the first night’s story!  The story team used a classroom off the fellowship hall to create their cave.  They covered the windows with black plastic, then hung a few flashlights in the cave to keep it friendly and fun for the younger kiddos.

The boat scene was mostly borrowed materials – a boat and lifejackets are the big attention getters!

The outdoor boat/walking on water night was decorated similar to indoors – paper signs, tarps and our boat moved outside!
