Here’s your guide to Vacation Bible Camps for Summer 2023!!
I loved attending Vacation Bible School at my church when I was a kid, so I make it a priority to send my kids to one each year. They have had great experiences when attending them, too, and I love that they are learning about God, the Bible, having fun and making new friends. There are 17 Vacation Bible Camp options in the Green Bay area this summer—many of which are FREE–so consider signing your kids up for a VBS/VBC program this year! For those that aren’t free, if cost is a concern, many offer scholarships or financial assistance if needed, so feel free to contact them directly with any questions about that. There are camps running in June, July and August. Some are in the mornings, others are in the afternoon or evening and a couple are all day. See which one works best for you! Camps are listed in chronological order.
(Also, if you know of a VBC/VBS that is missing from the list, please send the info to me at email@example.com. so I can add it.)
