Vacation Bible Schools for West Michigan Kids

Our list of Vacation Bible Schools will help you find when and where your children can get involved this summer in Grand Rapids and beyond.

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

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.

Thanks to our sponsor, Ada Christian School.

At Ada Christian School we partner with you in helping your children learn, grow and experience all God has planned for their lives. Take the first step in exploring the unique opportunities for your child. Schedule a tour today. 616-676-1289
