Summer Camps: A Miami Mom's Ultimate Guide for Summer 2021 Lynda Lantz Contributor Miami Mom Collective
Miami Mom Collective, Miami’s premier parenting resource, is thrilled to announce our 3rd annual Miami Summer Camps Guide. This guide features the best summer camps and activities in Miami and the surrounding areas. 

Summer is special. Like me, you may have fond memories of swimming, crafts, science workshops, and bonfires where you made lasting memories with good friends. And now as parents, it’s fun to think through ways to provide similar experiences for our own kids. 

Camps are a great way to make summer memorable.

For families who want a summer camp option for their children, we have compiled this helpful Guide to Summer Camps in and around Miami to make planning a little easier for you! This comprehensive list covers everything from discovery and exploration to dance, crafts, theater, and music. We hope our Summer Camp Guide serves as your one-stop resource for planning your summer calendar. Here’s to making 2021 the best summer yet here in The Magic City!

Making other summer plans? We’ve got you covered with these summer theme week ideas, our Florida Staycation Guide, all things Disney and so much more!

And if you’re planning a road trip, be sure to check out our Road Trip Series and tips. We’re here for you all summer long.

Miami Mom Collective understands that each family has a different comfort level regarding COVID-19, and encourages parents to continue to closely monitor CDC guidelines and make decisions that are best for their families. We also want to remind parents to do their due diligence when looking for safe summer camps and programs for their children. The Florida Department of Children and Families provides some helpful resources about choosing safe summer camps, including these summer camp FAQs.
