2018 Houston Vacation Bible School {VBS} Guide

It’s time to start planning for summer already, can you believe it? At our house, we love filling our summer calendar with fun activities, and VBS is one of the first things we plan. In case you are wondering VBS {Vacation Bible School} is a program many local churches offer for kids to learn about religion, sing songs, play games, do crafts, meet other kids, and just have fun. Most of them are 4-5 days long, for just a few hours each day, and many are either free or very low cost. VBS is typically for kids kindergarten through 5th grade, but some churches include preschool age kids and/or mentoring opportunities for preteens and teens as well. A few of them also offer camps after. You do not need to be a member of the church to sign your child up for VBS, but you do need to register ahead of time. So we hope this guide can be a great jumping off point for you!

Don’t forget to also check out our 2018 Ultimate Guide to Summer Camps for summer camp options in and around Houston.

    For a “comprehensive guide,” there is a noticeable lack of inclusion of Catholic VBS programs.

      Joanna,
      I am so sorry you feel that way!! It definitely wasn’t intentional at all if you feel there is an underrepresentation of Catholic VBS programs. Please feel free to comment with any you feel I may have missed.

        I’m on the west side, and I know that St John Vianney (Memorial and Eldridge) has one. All three Katy parishes (St. Bartholomew, St. Faustina and Epiphany of the Lord) have them, and St. Laurence in Sugar Land has one too. Just about every parish has one though, so hopefully anyone who wants can find one near them!

    I leave in Baytown. Is that area on here?
