Join the scuba team!

With YOUR help as the Scuba Team, this year can be the best yet! We are so excited to see the ways that God is going to work through VBS, and we're excited that you're considering being a part of the team. No matter your interests or skills, we have a volunteer opportunity for you.

Check out the opportunities below and let us know where you'd like to be plugged in!

In accordance with church policy, volunteering is open to members and regular attenders of East Bay Calvary Church.

Opportunities to Volunteer


Crew Leader

Preschool Team

Each child will be assigned a Crew when they register and will remain with their Crew for the whole week. The Crew (5-10 kids) is led from station to station by their trusty guide — the Crew Leader! Crew Leaders:

  • Greet their Crew members when they arrive and lead their assigned Crew between each station throughout the morning

  • Build relationships with their Crew members as they participate in exciting activities

  • Be ready to help Crew members in need (potty breaks, boo-boos, behavior expectations, etc.)

*Crew Leaders must be regular attenders of East Bay Calvary Church for at least 6 months

Storytime Team

At Deep Bible Adventures, kids are transported back to Bible times in unforgettable ways through storytelling! As part of the Storytime Team, you may:

  • Share the day's Bible story in an engaging way as a Station Leader

  • Help the Station Leader by handing out materials, working with Crews, etc.

  • Assist in the storytelling process by playing a part, acting out a skit, or dressing in costume

*Storytime Station Leaders (not helpers) must be members of East Bay Calvary Church

Imagination Station Team

Our littlest ones don't miss out on any fun at Scuba VBS! Preschoolers start their day with the big kids, then begin a separate schedule tailored to them. On the Preschool Team, you may:

  • Be a Station Leader or helper for Bible Adventure, Craft & Play, or Games (see descriptions below; Preschool Team is separate, but the roles are similar)

  • Be a Preschool Crew Leader

Games Team

During Reef Rec, Crews get to head outside to participate in awesome games (and burn off that extra energy!) If you enjoy being outside and being active, you may enjoy the Games Team by:

  • Leading the games with enthusiasm as the Station Leader

  • Helping the Station Leader pass out materials, organize Crews, and keep things moving


Registration Team


Explore, experiment, and discover God’s amazing creation at Imagination Station! If you enjoy science-y fun and hands-on learning, you might love helping this team by:

  • Encouraging kids’ sense of wonder and discovery as the Station Leader

  • Assisting the Station Leader by engaging with the Crews, helping with slides and music, and preparing Crew baskets

As a part of the registration team, your smile will be the first thing families see when they arrive at Scuba! Your responsibilities may include:

  • Greeting kids & parents as they arrive, and being available to help with any needs

  • Being available to assist & answer questions as pre-registered families check themselves in using our tablet-based check-in system

  • Registering those who haven't pre-registered

Snacks Team

Tidal Treats is definitely the yummiest part of Scuba! Each day, Crews will get a creative snack that relates to our theme. As part of this team, you will:

  • Prepare each day's unique snack as shown in the manual

  • Retrieve information each day such as kids per Crew, food allergies, etc.

  • Pass out snacks to Crews, then allow Crews to relax and enjoy relationship-building time

Nursery Team

For volunteers with kiddos from birth - 2 years, we will offer nursery so that our team can be fully committed to their time volunteering! If you choose to be a part of the nursery team, you will:

  • Care for team members' kids during Scuba

  • Read books, dry tears, play peek-a-boo, and maybe change a few diapers!

Opening & Closing Team

Hype up the day’s activities, sing fun songs, introduce and debrief the day, and so much more on Opening & Closing Team! If you’re comfortable on stage and have a big personality, you could rock Sing & Play Splash and Fin-tastic Finale by:

  • Welcoming kids to Scuba with enthusiasm; leading songs; introducing the day’s Bible Point, verse, and Bible Buddy; explaining any logistics of the day; closing the day with review and fun experiments as Station Leader

  • Assisting the Station Leader on stage

  • Taking on a fun (and a little bit silly) role and interacting with the Station Leader in a daily skit

Decorations Team

Transform our environment into a colorful coral reef on Decorations Team! As a part of this super important team, you might:

  • Plan and execute decorations for the stage, hallways, and lobby as Decorations Coordinator

  • Assist in creating decorations for the environment through creative work with materials such as foam board, cardboard, paper, wood — whatever it takes!

  • Help decorate our environment the week before Scuba VBS


At Scuba VBS, each day's snack will have a unique tie-in to this year's underwater theme! Kids will get to assemble and enjoy their snack as they build relationships with their Crew leader and fellow Crew members.

If you would like to help contribute to the supplies needed, visit the Snack Donation board outside the nursery, grab a card or two, and return the card with the supplies listed on it.
