2024 Guide to Vacation Bible Schools in San Antonio

A few years ago, one of my favorite songs played as I entered Lifeway Christan Store: “Yes to VBS.” Vacation Bible School signs are showing up in front of every church across the Alamo City, and it’s time to SAY YES! Vacation Bible School offers children a chance to immerse themselves in a week-long camp with a Biblical theme. Crafts, games, songs, and fun are common threads in VBS programs.

While we’ve made every effort to keep this list updated and current, please check directly with the church to confirm times, dates, and details.

Anastasia
Born and raised South Texan who has explored living in other states but there is no place like home. She loves being in the "room where it happens" and carries many different titles: mama to a bubbling boy and girly girl, wife to an associate pastor, communications consultant, and a variety of mis pronunciations of her name {Honest- Asia}. Mostly found with a large unsweet tea or iced Americano in hand at The Pearl, Yanaguana at the Hemisfair, side lines of games in Floresville, or exploring the trails of the San Antonio river.
