2017 Vacation Bible School Roundup

It’s Vacation Bible School time!

Summer is all fun and games until the first time (and subsequent times, at increasing volume, ad nauseam) you hear, “I’M BORED!

But good news, frazzled mama! Vacation Bible School (or VBS) is going on at dozens of churches in the Genesee County area! And the real kicker with VBS is… it’s usually free. That’s right: not only is your child out of your hair, your child is learning good, wholesome things! For free!

Another thing to note is that if you’re looking for something to do with your child or children, most VBS camps are glad to have extra volunteers, even if it’s at the last minute. Contact yours to see if you can volunteer!

*Please note that some VBS programs may charge a registration fee. Contact the VBS you’re interested in for more information.*
