While it has undergone many iterations, Vacation Bible School is widely credited as being started by Mrs. Virginia Sinclair Hawes in 1898 New York. After seeing her doctor-husband treat children for injuries incurred by playing outdoors all summer, she wanted to provide alternative, religious education opportunities. Informal nondenominational Christianity lessons over summers evolved with the involvement of more Baptist churches into organizations that compiled themed packages of lessons, videos, plays, and other material aimed at teaching religious messages to children over summers and evenings. Numerous VBS programs, memorabilia such as buttons, t-shirts, and hats were generated as keepsakes.
