Twin Cities Vacation Bible School Opportunities

Vacation Bible School seems to be a little like scouts or sleep-away camps in that some parents did it when they were kids and consider it a childhood rite of passage. While others, like me, did not even know these camps existed until I was an adult. I have very little experience with VBS, so this list is merely a collection of churches that have submitted their programs to us. I can’t personally endorse any.

Faith formation of our children is such a personal matter, that I recommend visiting the websites of these churches and possibly attending a service to decide for yourself if the program is a good fit for your family. Follow the links to explore and register for programs.

Besides Family Fun Twin Cities, I spend my 9 to 5 at a day job pursuing my weird passion for calendars and organizing things as a legal secretary. When I get home I spend my time with my four kids, 10, 6, 4 and 1. My amazing husband is both a full-time musician and full-time stay-at-home dad. Together we run a small radio empire — SiaNet Radio — playing, promoting and enjoying the wide variety of local music and art in the Twin Cities. I juggle all this while writing about exploring the Twin Cities with kids. I couldn’t be happier.
