2018 VACATION BIBLE SCHOOLS IN THE QUAD CITIES

In a repeat of last year’s post – I’ve update the Vacation Bible School options in the Quad Cities for summer 2018.  Again, I asked local moms for ones they recommend (Thanks to all who commented last year – your churches are on the list this year) and here’s what I gathered:

JUNE

June 3-7, 6pm-8:30 pm at Bettendorf Christian Church in Bettendorf, IA
Preschool-5th grade, Cost: Free

June 4-8, 5:30pm-8pm at First United Methodist Church in Geneseo, IL

entering Kindergarten-7th grade, Cost: Free

June 4-8, 6pm-8pm at Bethany Baptist Church* in Moline IL, VBS at Stephens Park in Moline, IL
Entering 1st-6th grade, Cost: Free

Bethany Baptist lives up to its promise for a “high-energy outdoor adventure” and is a fun option for an evening experience. Hosted outside at Stephens Park, rather than at the church, Bethany’s VBS offers a lot of hands-on action. In it’s 10th year at Stephens Park, this summer promises to be the best one yet!

June 11-15, 9am-noon at Pleasant View Baptist Church in Bettendorf, IA
Preschool-6th grade, Cost: Free

June 11-15, preschool 9-11am, gradeschool 9am-noon at First Congregational United Church of Christ in Moline, IL

June 11-14, 9am-noon Two Rivers United Methodist Church in Rock Island, IL

Two Rivers United Methodist is my kids favorite VBS because it’s a hands-on STEAM (Science Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Music) Creators’ Camp.” Campers rotate through their choice of two of five workshop options with hands-on fun such as ukelele lessons, science experiments and demonstrations, computer programming Sphero robots and art workshops. 

June 17-21, 6pm-8:30pm at Bettendorf Presbyterian Church in Bettendorf, IL

    Harvest Bible Chapel Day Camp (High Five) is actually June 11-15, not the 19-23. Registration is closed. The VBS at Harvest in August is at our West Campus location off of Hickory Grove Road and Central Park in Davenport. Thanks!
