The National Bible Bee's Summer Study is a focused 8-week program running from June to July. It offers a structured and engaging way for children and teens aged 7 to 18 to deepen their knowledge of the Scriptures through daily activities and community involvement.

Registration and Discovery Journals



Ensure your registration is completed by the spring deadline. This enrollment is crucial as it determines your receipt of the necessary study materials.

Discovery Journals


Participants will receive their Discovery Journals by the last week of May. These journals are designed to guide the daily study with five lessons each weekday, each taking about 20 minutes to complete.

Summer Study Structure

Daily Study


From Monday to Friday, participants should spend approximately 20 minutes on the lessons provided in their Discovery Journals. These journals are structured to deepen the participants' understanding of the Bible progressively and provide a good study tool for studying the Bible effectively.

Weekly Meetings


Families have the option to join weekly meetings either in person or online. These gatherings are vital to enriching the study experience. Activities during these meetings include:

  • Discussion: Review and discuss the lessons covered in the Discovery Journals.
  • Quizzes: Engage in quizzes to test understanding and retention of the weekly scripture passages.
  • Games and Fellowship: Participate in fun, engaging, and educational games.
  • Deepening Scriptural Understanding: Use these interactions to deepen understanding and genuinely internalize the teachings of the Bible.

This makes it an indispensable part of the preparation for those serious about excelling in the National Bible Bee.
