Welcome to Backyard VBS!


Thank you for signing up for St. David's home-based Backyard BOLT VBS! Let's get you started!

You can choose any day/time to run the program that works for your family, but we suggest one day per week over three weeks during July. 

  • Week of July 12th - BOLT DAY 1
  • Week of July 19th - BOLT DAY 2
  • Week of July 26th - BOLT Day 3

When you’re ready, gather the kids around and press play on the video. You can find all 3 videos on the BOLT Family Portal. Each video will lead you and the kids through the entire experience. Occasionally, the video will ask you to pause and do something. When you’re finished doing it, press play again.



You can access the on demand videos and resources all summer long on the BOLT Family Portal (Password: LETSBOLT). Just click on the button below.

You can also access the videos on this YouTube Playlist or copy and paste the following into a web browser: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLadc9fo1pca_Ikjk2u0hM-12Fuazf7SWx


No printing needed--the downloadable resources you see on the BOLT Family Portal are already provided in your supply bag! If your kids like stickers, they'll love the sticker scene for each Bible story. Plus you'll find a few game supplies! If you didn't get your free Backyard BOLT VBS supply bag(s) yet or would like more for friends, you can pick them up after worship on Sunday or in the church office while supplies last.


The BOLT VBS videos feature music by Ben Calhoun of the chart-topping Christian band--Citizen Way. If you would like to listen to the 3 featured songs (plus many more) with your family, you can stream them through this playlist on Spotify.


If you have any questions, call/text Julie Meier at (516) 974-7009 or email stdavidssundayschool@verizon.net. Please take lots of photos and share them with us so we can see all the fun you're having. We will pick some to feature on our website and/or facebook page. 


Your family is invited to a short fun-filled zoom meeting on Thursday, July 16th from 7:00 pm to 7:20 pm. St. David's has planned a BOLT Day 1 themed scavenger hunt! Kids will bolt away from the screen to find items and return to show us what they found. You'll get to see other kids on the screen who are doing BOLT in their backyards, too! On Thursday at 7pm, simply click the button below to join the meeting (Meeting ID: 918 2807 3596, Password: letsbolt).

It's going to be so much fun! Now let's BOLT!
