Vacation Bible Schools at churches in and around East Cobb, Marietta, Roswell, Canton
A special thank you to my friends Victoria and Revonda for helping me find the VBSes around town.
Please note that not all VBS are Monday through Friday. Some end on Thursday and some have a kick off on Sunday or a family night on Thursday/Friday night. Not all VBSes are free. I have tried to make note of these differences but check out the church's website for full details of any VBS you may wish to attend.
