Vacation Bible School in San Antonio 2020

Summertime is here, and along with a number of summer camps being offered in the Alamo City, Vacation Bible School is a favorite summer activity for many local families. Though some may look different than in years past, many programs are striving to bring the VBS experience to your children in creative and innovative ways. 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 don’t forget to check directly with the church to confirm times, dates, and details.

She has a degree in Psychology from Texas A&M University, and worked as a self-taught graphic designer until her twins were born. She is now the Owner of Rooted Birth , a San Antonio Doula Collective, where she is living her dream of serving and educating families as they transition to life with a new little one. She also enjoys reading, eating out, margaritas on patios, reality TV, and Jesus (but not in that order).
