2020 Houston Summer Camps Guide & Activities

Who doesn’t love camp! Kids, parents, parents who act like kids! Everybody loves going to camp and Houston has a lot of options!  This list of Houston Summer Camps grew so large it had to be separated out by very general quadrants using I-10 and I-45 as our criss-cross boundary lines.

The list is alive and always growing, we hope you find what you’re looking for but if not bookmark it and check back soon!

All the information listed below is about summer camps but often it is indicated if a company offers camps at other times. To check out a camp for a specific holiday break you can check out our lists specific to Spring Break, Thanksgiving, & Winter.

Also, we have a directory of Overnight Sleepaway Camps – when your camper is ready!

Are you a Summer Camp Director interested in getting your camp included in our guide?
