Susan5 Stars Out Of 5Loved the music, the theme, and message!June 14, 2014SusanQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We loved the videos. We used the videos in the opening and closing with no problem. The one with the kids playing instruments - "Praise the Lord Every Day" - had Yancy doing all the motions so I am not sure why there would be a complaint about that video. The kids learned the motions just fine, but I also led the motions on stage. You can't just put on the video and expect it to do all the work. The memory verse was long but not long enough that it caused any problems. We alternated between having students read the verse and reading it as a group. Worked fine. I never got the feeling that the treasure hunt was for things found in nature....just that they were looking for clues to who God is. The theme simply added a place to have the treasure hunt.....the jungle. The crafts were all musical instruments which were great because they were useful and out of the ordinary for VBS crafts. We used local missions, but our students still enjoyed hearing Ben and Joseph's story. My one critique would be that it needs more local and one night/on site options for the S.W.A.M.P (mission/service class). We had a great time and the adults really enjoyed the praise aspect of the VBS.
SBCCVBSHAWAIIHaleiwa, HIAge: 25-34Gender: female1 Stars Out Of 5Changed from years before, not the sameJune 6, 2014SBCCVBSHAWAIIHaleiwa, HIAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 2Value: 3Meets Expectations: 1We have a small church with about 100 kids for VBS. I used Standard Pub before and LOVED how simple and easy it was PLUS the scripture memory aspect! It was a perfect fit for our needs. This year, with Jungle Safari, something changed. We depend on using the music videos for our opening/closing and found them to be unusable this year- as this years videos seemed to be like the lead singer's music videos-and not VBS videos. Two were just power point slides and the others were not able to be used to help the kids with the music and motions-one even had preschoolers pretending to play instruments as she sang making it unusable. Another music video was a great song but was set in an african village-but that made it unusable for us as our mission was directed more locally than globally. The Bible verse was 4 verses (4 slides- it took forever to read) long and impossible for kids to remember and read-unlike previous years when it was simple and easy to put to motions. The theme seemed a bit disjointed-such as the kids were directed to be on a treasure hunt by discovering clues. These clues were said to be found in nature but weren't true because the clues were the earth, a raven, a paw print, a cross, and a crown. The treasure hunt aspect would have fit better if it were in a pirate or treasure seeking theme other than jungle safari. It seemed this VBS was half thought out. We had to do a lot of rearranging for this to work for us and was almost impossible for us to use in some aspects. After my first year of using Standard Pub for VBS I said I wouldn't use another publisher because it was such a good fit. I can't say that about this year, and I will probably be looking for another publisher for next year. In my perspective, they really dropped the ball this year for us.
Q: Due to the videography on the sample music DVD, the actions to the songs are very difficult to see. Does the DVD teach the actions?
The Jungle Safari Music Video DVD includes all 8 new music videos from Yancy, plus videos that teach the song motions.
