I loved attending Vacation Bible School at my church when I was growing up, so I make it a priority to send my kids to one each year. They have had great experiences when attending them as well and I love that they are learning about God and the Bible, having fun and making new friends. There are over 25 Vacation Bible Camp options in the Green Bay area this summer–12 of which are FREE–so consider signing your kids up for a VBS/VBC program this year! Many of the camps also offer scholarships or financial assistance if needed, so feel free to contact them directly with any questions about this. Camps are listed in chronological order. The last couple of listings have not set their dates yet, so check back for updates on that.
(Also, if you know of a VBC/VBS that is missing from the list, please send the info to me at email@example.com.)
