2019 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 2019 Ultimate Guide to Summer Camps for summer camp options in and around Houston.

About Jessica L.

After graduating college, Jessica moved to Fort Worth to pursue her love of fashion, listen to some Texas country music and have a little fun. One night out with a friend, 615 miles would be erased when this small town southeast Texas girl met her tall west Texas boy. Eventually jobs would move them to Houston where they would settle down into suburban life and have two sweet and VERY active boys, Jett {January 2011} and Jay {November 2012}. It wasn’t until having kids and becoming a stay at home mom, that Jessica truly fell in love with Houston. Her perfect day with the kids would begin EARLY at the zoo {because we all know parking there} with a strong cup of coffee, around lunch time they’d hop on the Hermann Park train and head over to Centennial Park for a picnic lunch and then they would end the day checking out the dinosaur exhibit at HMNS. When not exploring Houston, Jessica loves to shop online for amazing deals, watch Texas A&M football and basketball, and plan their next family adventure.


About Ugochi E.

Ugochi was born and raised right here in Houston, but has spent most of her adult life in the Midwest. She attended University of Michigan {Go Blue!} and Loyola University in Chicago. Her professional career has been going strong for over 13 years and consists of every educational role you can think of, from teacher to administrator. She is a mom of the youngest and cutest future scientist by the name of Arinze {May, 2014}, a lover of college football {did we say Go Blue already?}, gummy bears and exploring this great city for as cheap as possible #teacherlife. You can follow her on Instagram or on her blog Urban Kid in the City. When she’s not teaching or momming it up in West Houston, you can find her at the nearest library, writing poetry or volunteering with her church or sorority- Sigma Gamma Rho Sorority, Inc.

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

    • Jessica L May 7, 2018 at 8:35 pm #

      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.

      • Joanna May 10, 2018 at 8:30 pm #

        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?
