What’s YOUR favorite summer camp??

That’s the question we asked our Contributor Team and we are so excited to share their summer camp picks with you! We hope that you can find a camp (or two!) for your littles (or bigs) from this list, and that you walk away with a similar experience. Enjoy!

Allison's Summer Camp Pick

Camp War Eagle

“Camp War Eagle was an amazing experience for my son. He was able to participate in a wide variety of activities that he wouldn’t have ever had the opportunity to try without Camp War Eagle. I also love that it is faith-based and helps children to build character. He came home feeling more confident, independent, and even overcame his fear of swimming while he was there!”

Lindsay's Summer Camp Pick

Milwood Day Camp

“Milwood Day Camp! They have fieldtrips almost every single day. This will be my kiddos’ third or forth year attending summer camp at Milwood. I could write an entire article on how amazing this place is!”

Brittany's Summer Camp Pick

Casa Castillo Summer Camp

“Casa Castillo Summer Camp is PERFECT for those that need a flexible schedule in the summer. You have the option to sign up for certain weeks, or the entire summer if needed and the hours are tailored to your specific needs. Work full-time, want to grocery shop and clean, want a week free of kiddos? They’ve got you covered. And the most amazing part? Your kiddos learn Spanish the entire time! Camp varies week by week so there is sure to be something your kiddos will love!”
