For ten years now we have been producing high-quality apologetics- and biblical-authority-based, evangelistic Vacation Bible School curricula for churches around the world. Well, we are excited to announce that our 2017 Answers VBS, Operation Arctic, is the #1 VBS according to the children’s ministry site About the Children’s Department.

Lynda Freeman, of About the Children’s Department, who reviewed our VBS, explains why she chose Operation Arctic as #1:

VBS 2017 Top Pick

This year my Top Pick for VBS is Answers in Genesis’ Operation Arctic! If you have not already taken a close look at this excellent resource, please be sure to do so! . . . the reasons for making it my top pick, are . . . .

  1. Solid Bible teaching (all the kits I review have this, but I love how engaging these Bible lessons are!)
  2. I love the focus upon “Go & Do” to encourage children to live what they are learning.
  3. Excellent and complete director's material
  4. Overall engaging, fun, creative and a sound resource to help you reach children and families for Jesus and encourage them to grow in their walk with Him!

Definitely take a good look at Operation Arctic—you will be so glad you did!

Her entire review is available on their website, but here are a few of the things she liked about Operation Arctic:

  • As I would expect, Operation Arctic has a strong emphasis on teaching the infallibility of the Bible and salvation through Jesus! . . .
  • I’m very happy to see children opening and reading the Bible during the Bible event. . . .
  • I love the “Go and Do” portion of each lesson where children have specific things to go and do to live what they learned! . . .
  • I LOVE the science projects included in the craft time—children will love these! . . .
  • I’m very happy to see two kit options, so churches on a limited budget are able to make this work for them, too!

I recently did a Facebook Live video with our VBS project manager. We opened both a Starter Kit and a Super Starter Kit to show you what’s inside so you can get an overview of all the exciting items available with Operation Arctic. As I mentioned in the video, VBS has changed a lot since I was a kid—for the better! I’m blown away by all the fun, Bible-upholding items available for leaders and kids through our Answers VBS program! I encourage you to watch this video and share it with the VBS planners in your church.

And why did we decide on using Operation Arctic as the VBS theme this year? Well, because “The Bible Is the Coolest Book in the World.”
