All About Summer

Updated for 2023

As we prepared this All About Summer feature, we learned that camps of all kinds (day camps, mini-camps, and workshops) are filling up extra early this year. If you haven’t started booking camps for your kids, particularly for June, it’s time to jump on it.

My hope is that you will discover in these pages all sorts of new options for this summer, plus some stalwarts, and enjoy a wide array of activities all summer long. If you’re looking for a certain type of program, reach out to us. I bet we have a resource we can share.
