So let’s see. We’ve looked at Vacation Bible Schools in Grand Rapids. Thanks to Kristen, Kelli, Nicol, Sonshine, and E for the additions – keep ’em coming! There are several churches that don’t have the information on their websites, but have offered VBS in the past so I will check on those and link up when it’s available.
Again, I do not think summer should be expensive. The next place we can look for fun isn’t free, but it’s less expensive than most camps. What do I have against summer camp? They are run by fine organizations, some are non-profits even. Your kids will be entertained by the programming. They will be out of your hair for a few hours. These are all good things – but I’d rather send my kids to a few different things than one expensive camp.
It takes a little more work – but I have pulled together a list of links that will make it a lot easier. A day camp costs about $180 a week. Community Ed and Parks and Rec programs are about $75. If you take an hour to go through the websites below, you have saved $105. Not bad for an hour. Nice job, you!
