Central Florida Summer Camp Guide

This guide is brought to you in partnership with the featured businesses. We are grateful for their sponsorship which allows us to continue to bring resources like this to local Central Florida area families.

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!!

CECO Summer Camp

CECO’s fun and educational Summer Camp is focused on conductive education, which implements an intensive physical, social-emotional, and cognitive program for individuals with motor disabilities, like but not limited to cerebral palsy and Spina bifida.

Quest’s Camp Thunderbird’s six-day overnight sessions provide parents and guardians a break from the demands of 24-hour caregiving. For many families, this respite is their first chance to relax, spend time with friends or even take a vacation knowing that their loved one is receiving quality care and attention.
