Who’s ready for summer?!
All we are dreaming about is being outside in the sun, and kids having the best time this summer! Even if you have an awesome Summer Bucket List, Orlando Summer Camps are always a great idea!!
Just because the kids will be out of school doesn’t mean they have to stop learning, growing, and playing! Summer Camp is an excellent way to foster a child’s love of an interest or skill. And gain new friends while they are at it. Plus, they stay engaged, busy, and active during the day!
Although it might still be considered winter, but it’s that time of year when moms need to start thinking about summer plans. Wait, what!? Yup, any experienced mom knows that to stay sane during summer break, you need to put those kiddos in camp! But there are just so many options out there to choose from.
We are lucky to have so many different Orlando Area Summer Camps available for our kids in Central Florida that focus on so many activities!
Whether your child is into sports and dance, history, performing arts, or computer technology, we’ve put together our 7th annual Summer Camp Guide sponsored by O2B Kids that showcases something for everyone. We hope that this resource provides the information that you need to plan a fun and stress-free summer!!
Here are some of the BEST summer camps in our area. Please support our sponsors!!
School’s Out and it’s Time to PLAY! O2B Summer Camp offers FUN first to every child every day, but rest assured that your child’s learning will never stop.
