School is wrapping up, and that means summer is on the way. Are you hoping to keep your kids active and learning this summer? There are various summer camps in the CSRA that offer a variety of activities to stimulate their minds and keep them moving this year.

Reasons To Sign Your Kids Up For Summer Camp

For working parents, summer camp can be a solution for finding childcare during the summer. But not only does it provide a safe space for your child, it can be a great opportunity for your child to make new friends and learn new things.

Many summer camps offer a variety of activities throughout the summer. These can range from arts and crafts, sports, science, swimming, and more. Some camps host themed weeks throughout the summer to focus on different areas. This can include dress up days or field trips to learn more about the weekly topic.

There are many great benefits for kids going to summer camp, including building new friendships, fostering independence, learning life skills, and more.

Options For Summer Camps In The CSRA

Most camps are day camps, but there are a few overnight camp options around the CSRA. You can see the different camp options below. Be aware that summer camps in the CSRA can fill up fast, so you’ll want to reserve your spot as soon as possible.

Keep in mind that some day camps are not open for early drop off or late pick up. This could be a determining factor when you’re planning which camp you choose. Most camps are closed on holidays that fall within the camp calendar (Memorial Day, 4th of July).

Also, some camp costs include lunch and snacks for campers, while others require you to send lunch and snacks with your child each day. Keep this in mind when looking into camps to fit your budget.

Costs vary by camp, and some may include additional costs for field trips or days where campers can purchase special treats (ice cream, snacks, etc.).
