Fun Kid’s Summer Camps

by Jennie on June 7, 2012

Now that school is out and summer is officially here, kids have several opportunities to get involved in FUN summer camps.

  • West Chester Academy of Music: With 16 unique 1 week camps, there is something for everyone, ages 3 through 18. Acting, dance, music, juggling and more! Daytime and evening options are available. Receive a $25 multicamp discount for siblings or for the same student who takes more than 1 camp. Kim and I take the boys to music classes here and LOVE it! Even Grayson gets into the music and instruments!
    There are 3 ways to register:
    1. Go online. You can create a user name and password, and enroll yourself into the camp(s) you choose.
    2. Call 513-829-2345.
    3. Click here to download and print a registration form.
  • The Little Gym:  The Little Gym camps combine physical activity and games with arts, crafts and special events. Each week offers an interactive learning theme and each day brings a different, creative lesson plan. Plus, flexible scheduling options allow you to sign up for several weeks, a single week or even just a day at a time! I already have Cody registered for a few of these! I love that you can just sign up for one if you want… no pressure!
  • The Cincinnati Zoo: Full Day Camps include a summer camp T-shirt, snacks (campers pack lunch), giraffe and lorikeet feeding, animal shows, train rides, a 4-D theater experience (except 4-5 year olds), live animal encounters, games hikes, and so much more! I am sure if you aren’t local to cincy you can check out your local zoo for camp options. Also, Dad’s get in free to the zoo on June 17th!
  • Gorman Heritage Farm: Where kids grow on farms! Camp activities include: interacting with barnyard animals, exploring the woods, garden fun, games, hiking, crafts, music and more. Special themed camps for wilderness, art, cooking & science. For ages 4-18. I can’t wait until next summer because I LOVE this farm and all they stand for and it will be a great place to try out for Cody! I am sure any of the local farms will be having camps as well so find one near you and get the kids involved in learning about life on the farm and where our food really comes from!

Wyoming Rec has some really cool camps are are very resonably priced; as well as the Wyoming Art Center. Cincinnati Gymnastics has some GREAT camps. Also your local churchs should have free VBS programs. My children are going the VBS at their preschool Little Bud the week of July 9th in Colerain and it is free!!! They do a nice job and have a really fun closing ceremony for the family on Friday evening.
