Summer 2019 VBS (Vacation Bible School) Camps in the Southwest Suburbs

Looking for a Vacation Bible School for summer 2019? Great! Your kids are guaranteed to have fun, meet new friends, do crafts, and learn more about Jesus, all while you get a well-deserved break. Vacation Bible School is a win-win in my book. The best part: you don’t need to be a part of the congregation or parish in order for your child to attend. Many vacation Bible schools open up registration in April, so be sure to be on the look out!

She is always looking for cheap, yet entertaining and worthwhile things to do. When she is not wrangling her kids, Jill has a passion for starting, and sometimes finishing, do-it-yourself home improvement projects, trying out random recipes she finds on Pinterest, and organizing every nook and cranny of her life.
