Vacation Bible School in San Diego 2015

Posted on: May 4th, 2015 by Kate Hamernik


Vacation Bible School is a big part of our family’s Summer fun – our kids love learning about Jesus, playing games, crafting, eating snacks I typically wouldn’t buy them, and hanging out with friends.  I love that VBS lets them experience all of these things AND it is almost always very inexpensive and in some cases FREE!  Our VBS lists have always been popular in the past and I am excited to see that people are already searching for fun VBS options in San Diego for 2015.  This is just a tiny list so far but I hope it continues to grow!  If you are a San Diego Area church looking to list your VBS please contact us!  I need you to simply send me the name of your church, the dates, the price, and a link to the VBS landing page – that’s it –  I will list your VBS for FREE here! *Update*  I have closed this list for submissions for San Diego VBS listiings 2015 – please bookmark (or subscribe!) to our site and message us ASAP for our  San Diego Vacation Bible School 2016 list!  We would love to have that list even bigger!  Thank you to all that contributed this year – if you are late to the game please feel free to leave your VBS 2015 information in the comment section!

Again – if you would like us to list your VBS please contact us!  Your Vacation Bible School simply needs to be at a church in San Diego County! (please note, we have cut off the submission list at this point – PLEASE contact us ASAP next year so we can make sure to put your church in the listing!  We try to cut off the list by June 1st – this year we went well into the middle of June with updates but next year June 1st is a hard and fast rule 😉 ) Please feel free to like our San Diego Deals and Steals facebook page – I happily allow churches to share their VBS links there as well!

Oh – and if you are a volunteer at VBS pretty please read this…… For Crying Out Loud, I don’t want to see your underwear at church.

*Full Disclosure – VBS stands for “Vacation Bible School” meaning it is gonna be totally and unapologetically ‘faith based’ – that’s totally fine with our family but based on complaints we have had in the past I thought I should just put it out there.  VBS is gonna be ‘churchy’. 😉 Also, there is no way for me to know about every church listed here – this is simply a free listing I provide.  Please make sure to check out every church for yourself and see if it is the right fit for your family.


*Full Disclosure* Vacation Bible School is obviously faith based, which is totally fine for our family, but in case it isn’t obvious, and in case it is a concern for some, I just had to make it clear – VBS is gonna be ‘churchy’ – See more at:
