You can have several Lesson Segments on any day of Treasure Tour.
Treasure Tour Treasure Hunt

A fun team race to “unlock” the next segment by finding “keys” which you have hidden on your campus. Each team is presented a clue which they must solve in order to be led to their team’s key. A day of Treasure Tour can include up to six Treasure Hunts! Use the included tools for setting up treasure hunts on your campus.

What's Needed

Items you'll need to supply

Item Explanation
Classrooms Needed One “Home Room” classroom and one game room. If Home Room is a gymnasium, no other rooms are needed.
Volunteers Needed One Director, One Teacher, a couple of Check-In volunteers, and one Teen Helper for each team (up to six teams). Volunteers may fill multiple roles.
Supplies Needed for Games Our games call for low-cost supplies which can be purchased from nearly any discount store like Walmart. The specific items you'll need are detailed in the materials themselves, and the quantities needed depends upon the number of children you will have.
Paper If you choose to print everything we supply, you'll need 500-1000 sheets or more of paper. See "Printing Solutions" below.
Ink or Toner If you choose to print everything we supply, you'll probably go through a couple of ink cartridges. Laser printing may be more cost-effective. See "Printing Solutions" below.
Printing Solutions It may not be necessary for you to print many of our materials. Using smartphones or tablets, you and your staff can access our materials from those devices and work straight from their screens. Or, you can have multiple people login to our website and ask them to print a portion of the materials you need. For example, you could ask teachers to print their own lessons, etc. Smaller churches will surely not need to do as much printing, and larger churches will tend to be more capable of larger amounts of printing. Higher amounts of printing will cause increased costs in paper and toner. However, even if your ministry spends as much as $150 for ink and paper, the cost of our VBS still comes in lower than most of our competitors.
