  • Everything the Mountain Mama Director needs to organize this five day VBS event is included in one notebook: Scheduling suggestions, decorating ideas, tips for motivation, complete lesson plans and more! 2 1/2 hours per day.

    Daily mountain activities provide a variety of exciting mountain experiences. Gather on the FRONT PORCH for a down home opening where Mama Hatfield and Mama McCoy continue their famous feud. Eat turkey tongue, groundhog stew, and porcupine soup in COUNTRY COOKIN' KITCHEN and play authentic mountain games at ALLIGATOR ALLEY. Jump into GRANDMA'S FEATHER BED to hear the five day story adventure "Safe At Home". Sing sweet Christian ballads at the SMOKY MOUNTAIN HOE DOWN. Enjoy the simple life while making mountain toys at PIGEON ROOST.

    Five workshops represent mountain places where students learn how believers from scripture depended on God to get them out of jams. They enjoy a mountain activity, memorize a scripture verse, hear a Bible story and complete a craft. FLUTTERMILL HIDEAWAY...God is With Me When I Am In Danger. WHIMMY DIDDLE WOODSHED...God Is With Me When I Am Lost. DANDELION PATCH...God Is With Me When I Need Help. ROCKY ROAD HOLLER...God Is With Me When Others Hurt Me. BEAR PAW BEE TREE...God Is With Me When I Disobey.

    Polliwogs (ages 4-5) "splash" in their own preschool FROG POND with a separate team of teachers and helpers. Nursery (birth-age 3) is separate.

    SMOKY MOUNTAIN KIDS is a book of mountain chorus favorites. (It is no longer available commercially, but do a search on the title and you may be able to pick one up for a few dollars.  If you need help, let us know at 888-236-5433. It is worth the effort.)

    This charming summer theme reminds all of us of a simpler time and place where the bees buzz all day and kids enjoy swimming in the water hole. People from America's Appalachian region are truly kind, gentle folk who have turned the necessity of simple living into an art form. Take your young'ns to a mountain place for one week of pure, simple enjoyment along with lessons about our Savior. HOWDY DO!!!
