We have a little tradition on San Diego Deals and Steals to always curate a list of free and inexpensive Vacation Bible Schools in San Diego. If you represent a San Diego (any county!) Church and would like to list your church’s VBS for FREE, please message us! If you are looking for VBS in San Diego, you have come to the right place! Our list always tends to list more North County Vacation Bible School options, but we would love to include more, please do not hesitate to message us with links for other options.
The San Diego Deals and Steals Vacation Bible School list will continue to be updated as we get closer to summer. Make sure to bookmark this page and share it with others! Many churches have not updated their websites with VBS options yet, but they are coming. I wanted to get the list started because people were already asking. This list will grow!
Each Vacation Bible School is run differently. Most of these churches I have never attended. San Diego Deals and Steals is just sharing the links and dates so each family can research on their own. Vacation Bible School is faith based. Some of the following camps are free, some do have a fee. Many offer a discounted rate if a parent is willing to volunteer. Camp is typically half day in the morning or evening. Please check the links below for times and locations.
Our family VBS because they are budget friendly and we love the lessons they learn. Kids typically receive a free tshirt, snacks, crafts, and more while at camp. We have met life long friends at VBS and enjoyed personal growth and sweet memories. I love that I have a few hours in the morning to do my own thing! We typically enjoy at least two VBS camps each summer. We have noticed a vast difference from one camp to the other. Some churches have larger budgets than others, but we appreciate them all! Remember most are run with donations and by volunteers so make sure to smile when you drop off!
