How to Choose a Summer Camp

If you are just getting started you might be wondering how to choose a summer camp so we have put together a guide with some information, tips and advice. Summer camps have been around for over 100 years and there are now well over 10,000 in North America with millions of children attending every year. The camps we feature include day camps and sleep away / residential camps.  You can find camps offering a wide variety of programs including sports camps, activity / adventure camps, arts camps, drama / film school camps, craft and skills camps and camps offering educational programs including science, maths and computing. On our website you can also find specialist camps for children with specific cultural, physical or educational requirements where staff will have skills and experience in meeting these needs. These include religious camps, weight loss camps and a range of camps offering programs and activities tailored for those with disabilities or mobility / access needs. If you are seeking a different type of experience with Summer Camp 365 you can also locate worldwide summer camps in places like the UK and Australia. 

Our website navigation is easy to use allowing you to find a camp quickly, you can browse by location, type or by activities on offer. You can also view our top recommended featured camps. Our directory is also 100% free to use and you do not need to register to browse. With Summer Camp 365 you can search thousands of camps today and contact them today to arrange a placement. There are lots of different ways you can search camps, you could search by clicking a specific activity e.g. you could be interested in sports programs or you might want to find a camp in a specific region of North America, e.g. Camps in California. When you click one of the options we have listed below this will open up a new page with the results listed in a clear and easy to navigate format. When you find a camp which appeals to your interests you will be able to read more information, send an inquiry or visit the camps website.

There are lots of important factors to consider when trying to choose the right summer camp and it is best to read as much information as possible before enrolling. All camps are different and offer specific programs to different ages and genders, sessions can vary in length anywhere from one day to over a 4 week period. Prices for all camps vary depending on the length of participants and programs. You might want to consider location as an important factor, for example if you are looking for a short day camp or less than a week long sleep away you might want to choose a camp close to where you live. But if you are flexible with time geographic location of camps might be little less of an issue. We recommend you browse more than one camp, there are literally thousands on our database and so you might like to make a short list of the best ones. It is also good to match your interests to a specific camp, for example if the participant enjoys camping then a wilderness camp might be best suited or if they are looking to learn a new skill then an activity based camp might be better.

To register a place at a camp you will need to book in advance, every year millions of children attend camps in the USA and spaces can fill up quick. To help find the perfect summer camp you will need to put together a list of criteria and answer some questions to narrow down your search. There are so many questions which can help decide which camp is the right choice, we have put together some examples which you might want to discuss and you are the best judge to decide after consultation with your child.

  • Check to see if an overnight, sleepaway or day camp would be best
  • How much time do you have free, most camp sessions are either 1 or 2 weeks in duration although longer placements can also be found
  • Would your child be looking just for an enjoyable experience or would they actually like to improve a particular area e.g. sports or academics
  • Are you open to a coed camp, or would an all boys/girls camp better suit your child
  • Would you prefer a wildlerness camp in a remote location or something more urban, there are inner city camps throughout the USA
  • Do facilities matter, some camps have world class high tech facilities but the cost of these camps can be higher
  • What is your budget, generally private and independent camps are more expensive than agency or YMCA themed camps
  • If you have more than one child, are there are camps where you can place them both together

If you start the search with a clear aim e.g. I want a camp where my child can improve their computer skills then you will find using our website much easier to use/find what you are looking for. But also don’t worry if you have no defined criteria, you could browse the different sections of our website to view lots of different camps and then make a short list of your favorites. Summer camps are available via telephone and e-mail and also most camps now have online websites where you can request a brochure or dvd. A lot of camps also have open days where you can visit to meet staff and check facilities. If you need any help or advice about finding or choosing a summer camp please contact us for more information, we can help connect you to the right camps providing your children with a safe, rewarding and most importantly fun learning experience.
