VBS in Grand Rapids – Where to Find 2022 Vacation Bible School

Vacation Bible Schools for West Michigan Kids

Grand Rapids summer fun is everywhere – including many local churches who love opening their doors to kids in their community with activities, games, songs and smiles every year for Vacation Bible School.

Vacation Bible Schools are one of many types of Grand Rapids summer camps. You don’t have to attend any church to participate in VBS, and most of them are free.

Want to add your VBS to the guide?

You may! [submit it here.] This is a free service but we do ask that you give grkids.com a little love in return. If your church has a facebook page, website, newsletter, bulletin board, etc., please include a little blurb about grkids at the earliest opportunity.

Please submit your Vacation Bible School as early as possible. It will be added to this list as soon as it is approved.

Grand Rapids VBS List

Be sure to register your child for any camps you’re interested in to ensure a spot.

We are continually updating this list, so check back regularly for new additions!

GRKIDS provides this VBS information as a general service to the community. Decisions on participation in any religious-based program are, as always, based on a personal / family decision.
