I truly loved this theme. I had planned earlier this year, and ordered some of the products which, by the way, were a bit pricey. Many of the items were backordered or out of stock. So I had to come up with, well, plan "D." I loved the headbands, and so did the kids. It was less expensive to make them. Some of the items are very expensive so we improvised. I would pay more for the starter kit just to have the student packs cheaper. Another great point is that this theme provides many ways to be creative. We made the bridges. Fantastic!! Carpet companies gladly donated the cardboard rolls. The bamboo material and papers truly make the setting. It is worth it to buy them. This program was so organized that every thing went smoothly. They thought of everything. The songs were awesome which is why I chose this kit. On our last day, we had a parent come for the first time. She cried during the entire program because of the presence of God's love and the love that was expressed for all the children especially her two daughters. This was truly a God sighting. Thank you, Group. And, thank you, God!

I've been using the package to prepare for VBS. My only complaint is that it calls for a very high adult to child ratio if you set things up the way they recommend. I was also a little disappointed in the quality of the crafts. However, the songs are fantastic, and there is plenty of material to work with. It's also very well organized. The clip art CD was a pleasant bonus. So far, I am happy with the themes and the quality of the product.

I am a frist time VBS Director and did not know much about the planning process. This kit takes you step by step the whole way through. I loved the great ideas suggested within the kit, the music and clip art, and the information about the free advertising website! I would recommend this kit to anyone!

I am purchasing this for our VBS this year! We have used Group Publishing for 4 years now, and love how it is set up and so well organized. The daily Bible lessons have great illustrations and really get the kids involved. The music is great! This can be easily adapted for any size church. Great for the VBS director veteran, or a newbie! You will love the layout!

This product has resources and material in it, for the best value. The kit is filled with more ideas and supplies to fit a church of any size. I belong to a smaller church so it is nice being able to look at everything at once, and being able to see the variety of material in the curriculum, then deciding what to use to make our VBS a success. Very helpful kit and it is the best I have seen out there, when comparing different VBS kits. Best deal for your money too :0)
