Information Sheet

We’re so excited your child can join us this year for an AWESOME week of FUN as we get AMPED! and learn how to live fully alive for God! Please take a moment to review the following information for the safety and security of all children during VBS week.

Drop-off & Pick-up

Arrival Time: 5:45–6 pm

Once you have arrived, please report to the check-in table to check in your child. You will receive an alphanumeric label for you and your child. Please attach the label with your child’s name to the front of their shirt. The other label is yours to keep and must be presented when picking up your child.  If you are planning to have someone else pick up your child, please make sure to give them this label so they can present it at pickup.

Please take your child to their grade-designated tent where they will meet their small group leader. *Pick-up/dismissal will be from the same location. To prevent confusion and congestion, PLEASE DO NOT ENTER TENTS during dismissal time.

Pick-Up Time:  7:45 pm


Please report allergies (including, but not limited to, food allergies and insect allergies) or other special needs to the Amped! staff at check-in.


We will be outdoors all week, and some activities will be messy! Please make sure your child is wearing clothing that can get dirty and shoes that are good for running.

In the event of inclement weather in the forecast, our schedule could potentially need to be modified or cancelled. Notifications will be sent out via the Remind app (please sign up following the instructions below), our OC app, and posted on the OC Children’s Ministry and Otterbein Church Facebook pages.
