Every summer many of our local churches offer free or low-cost Vacation Bible School (VBS) sessions for kids. This is not only a great resource provided to the tri-city community, but it is also a wonderful time for children to learn great social skills and morals, meet new friends, and have lots of fun!
Check out the following Vacation Bible Schools in Fremont, Newark, and Union City and see if any will work with your summer schedule.
