2021 Houston Vacation Bible School {VBS} Guide

2021 Houston Vacation Bible School {VBS} GuideVacation Bible School is back!

2020 limited most of the fun activities for our kids, but we can all be thankful that 2021 is allowing us to fill up our summer calendars again! VBS {Vacation Bible School} is a program hosted by many local churches, giving children an opportunity to learn about religion, make new friends, engage in activities, arts and crafts, and most importantly, have a great time! Most VBS programs are free or low cost and provide a few hours of fun for 4-5 days of the week. Typically, children from kindergarten through 5th grade can attend, but some churches offer participation to older kids as well. Some churches even offer afternoon camps to follow Vacation Bible School. The programs are open to the community, so all are welcome to join in! Registration fills up quickly, but many churches offer a waitlist. Hope this guide steers you into a great summer of exciting Vacation Bible School experiences!

Don’t forget to also check out our 2021 Ultimate Guide to Summer Camps for summer camp options in and around Houston.

    • Joanna,
      I am so sorry you feel that way!! It definitely wasn’t intentional at all if you feel there is an underrepresentation of Catholic VBS programs. Please feel free to comment with any you feel I may have missed.

      • I’m on the west side, and I know that St John Vianney (Memorial and Eldridge) has one. All three Katy parishes (St. Bartholomew, St. Faustina and Epiphany of the Lord) have them, and St. Laurence in Sugar Land has one too. Just about every parish has one though, so hopefully anyone who wants can find one near them!

  1. Central
    River Oaks Baptist Church (Free) Week of June 11
    Pilgrims Lutheran – Week of June 18
    Central/West – Chinese Baptist – Week of July 9 – free
    West – Christ the King Presb – Week of July 16
    North East – Lakeway Baptist, Humble – week of July 23 (PM). Free
    Northeast – Lamb of God Lutheran, Humble – week of July 23 (AM). Free
    Christ the Servant Lutheran – PM in July. Usually the last week of July. Schedule not yet out for this year.
    Sugarland Bible Church
