Vacation Bible Schools

Note:  Hey, early birds! This list was from 2012, and I haven’t updated it yet. But, most of these links should work and most of these churches should be offering a VBS. If you want to make sure to see the updated list, you may want to bookmark this site, or “Like,” SFM on Facebook or subscribe to my emails so you don’t miss it!

Welcome to the Sounds Fun Mom list of South Sound Vacation Bible Schools for 2012! This list was compiled from information sent to me and suggestions left on the Facebook page.

It in no way covers every church in the area, so if you know of a good one I should add, don’t be shy! Also, please know that I have not verified this information, and I am leaving it up to you to do that and to make sure that the program offered is compatible with your family’s faith traditions.
