It's Not Too Late for Summer Camp

Now that school is practically out, there is still time to register your child for many camps right here in Valley Stream.  Many of the areas camp don't start until July, so what do you do with the kiddos between now and then?  See all the details below. If they ask you how you found out about them, tell 'em Valley Stream Mom sent you.

Starting Monday, Grace United Methodist Church will kick off it's annual Vacation Bible School, or VBS as Valley Stream Daughter says.  She enjoyed the camp last summer and learned all about NYC during the week.  The 5-day camp costs just $15 for the week and takes place daily 9 a.m. to 12 p.m.

Bethlehem Assembly of God opens its doors to all children for Vacation Bible School in August. Although successful, last year seemed a bit disorganized. My guess is that they weren't prepared for the overwhelming response in it's first year.  I'm hoping they are better organized.  They did ask parents to attend a midweek performance/service as well as a Friday night finale.  I.honestly wasn't up to it, but in.the end it was a very cute production.  My favorite part aside daughter's performance was the puppet show. You're never too old for puppets.

Daily: 9 a.m. - 3 p.m.
Fee: $25 (slightly higher afterwards)
