Today, San Antonio Mom Blogs welcomes local blogger and guest contributor* Sara Phillips, with Sensibly Sara, who compiled this comprehensive list of more than 70 VBS in San Antonio. She also created this super helpful map that allows you to search for a VBS by location. You can grab and slide the map or zoom in and out. Just click a star for more details about each VBS on her map!

Vacation Bible Schools (VBS) can be a ton of fun.  I really believe parents want to know when and where they can find VBS options close to home which is why I’ve put together this list of 70+ choices.  Unless otherwise noted, the Vacation Bible Schools listed below are free (or have an optional fee).  I’ve compiled this list to the best of my ability.  Some churches don’t have ages, time or themes listed yet and I’ve made note of that.  This list is divided by month and then date.  If you want to search for a certain church, hit Control + F and type in the church name.  You can do that to search for anything – time, theme, etc.  There is also an incredibly cool interactive map to see which VBS is closest to you.
