Miami Mom Collective, Miami’s premier parenting resource, is thrilled to announce our 4th Annual Miami Summer Camps Guide. This guide features the best local 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, music, and more. We hope our Summer Camp Guide serves as your one-stop resource for planning your summer calendar. Here’s to making 2022 the best summer yet here in The Magic City!
