A quick note about Camps links: Many camps are announced later than we, as parents, would like to plan for them! All camps listed below currently or previously offered a session camp. If the page is not up to date you have a few options: check back later, visit the camp’s social media (often camps are announced there first), or just reach out and ask!

What is not on our list:

Aside from our list of camps, we did not include Vacation Bible Schools (VBS) camps. Mostly, becuase they are so numerous. They are also a really great option for free or very low-cost camps. So, consider looking into your local house of worship. Similarly, we know the term “low cost” can be subjective. So, for our list, “low cost” means less than $100 per week.
