Vacation Bible School

On the lookout for a fun camp option for your children this summer? Vacation Bible School events are one option for kids to have a blast dancing, singing, crafting and meeting new friends.

Each summer, churches all around Southwest Michigan offer VBS programs through their children’s ministries.

VBS programs typically last several days up to one week. Ages for those who can attend VBS vary by the church. Also, be aware that there are typically registration deadlines for the VBS that you are interested in. Many programs are FREE or have a nominal fee.

Want to add your church VBS to the guide? Of course! Submit it HERE.

Please submit your Vacation Bible School information as early as possible. It will be added to the list as soon as it is approved.
