Summer break means Vacation Bible School for many kids. So, whether you are new to church, been going your whole life, or maybe just want to check it out for the first time…I hope this provides you and your family an excellent resource for getting plugged in.

For more summer camps in and around Austin, check out our 2024 Guide.

St. David’s Episcopal Church | VBS: May 28-May 31

St. Ignatius Martyr | VBS: June 3-8

Kids pray together, share experiences about their families and faith, experiment with science projects, participate in Bible-themed adventures and, of course, enjoy spring games. Be sure to stay tuned and join us this coming June!

Faith Bible Church | VBS: June 10-13

We are thrilled your child/ren will be joining us at Faith Bible Church for Vacation Bible School 2024 Mon-Thurs, June 10-13, 9am-12pm! It is going to be an epic week!

What age can attend? Kids must be entering Pre-K through 5th grade (must be 4yrs. old and fully potty trained to attend Pre-K and 5th graders must be entering 5th grade in the fall of ’24). Please send your child each day with sunscreen already on, in closed-toed shoes, and with a fully labeled water bottle. We will provide fun creative snacks each day and will have allergy-friendly options (please let us know of any extenuating circumstances in which you need to send your own snack).

Every day, our kids are bombarded with questions: Did God really create everything? Why do bad things happen? Was Noah’s ark real? Why do I need to be saved? Can I trust the Bible?

At this VBS, your kids will explore the biblical answers to these questions as they set off on an epic adventure from Genesis to Revelation. Your children will sail along on a fun jungle cruise, stopping at seven ports of call. These ports are the 7 C’s of History: Creation, Corruption, Catastrophe, Confusion, Christ, Cross, and Consummation. Kids will discover how these events shape our world, and they will learn to reconnect the Bible to their everyday life.

Prepare to swing into fun as we head out on The Great Jungle Journey!

First United Methodist Church of Austin | VBS: June 10-13

Surrounded by water, trees, and rolling hills, Camp Firelight is the perfect location for every Camper’s favorite summer activities! With the help of Lu the Lightning Bug and the Camp Counselor Guidebook, Counselor Sam and our Campers explore timeless Bible stories that show how Old and New Testament Campers trusted God in the face of their own fears and went on to do great things in God’s name. Through these stories, this program will teach us to trust that God will go with us, lead the way, share wisdom, to give us peace, and spark joy as we celebrate the good news of Jesus in our own lives and in the lives of others. New this year: extend the day with an after Vacation Bible School camp with Austin Youth Fitness. Kids will bring a lunch and spend the afternoon having fun in the Family Life Center. For more information about VBS, extending the day, or to register now, go HERE.
