Lots of churches offer a one week Vacation Bible School to pre-school and elementary aged kids in the community.  Many programs include older kids as volunteers and song leaders. You don’t have to be a member of the church to attend.  Each school has a theme, with activities and songs tied into learning about God and having fun.  Programs are low cost or free.

Here is some info on VBS programs offered this summer in the East Memphis area.  If a program has dates on their website they are below, some times are copied from last summers information but should still be accurate.  This list will be updated as we get closer to summer.
