Get Ready for Fun at Vacation Bible School in 2022

By:
Resources for Families

Whether you are an active churchgoer, looking for a faith community, or exploring your beliefs, Vacation Bible School (often referred to as VBS) is a great activity for the summer. These short camps allow kids of all ages to gather, learn about religion, and get acquainted with Scripture while playing games, singing, and enjoying crafts and snacks. After a couple summers of being limited to holding virtual camps, or no camps at all, most local churches will be back in action in 2022! Be sure to check the list below — some have already opened for registration, so don’t wait if you find a favorite.
