Miami Mom Collective Guide to Summer Camps in Miami Presented by The Real Food Academy
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!

Making other summer plans? We’ve got you covered with these summer theme week ideas, our Florida Staycation Guideall 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 wants 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.

  1. The fact that no effort was put into providing any info about the camps in the list (hyperlink, location??) makes this guide anything but ultimate.

    • Thanks for commenting and we value your opinion. We put lots of effort into making our Camp Guide as comprehensive as possible by providing an organic listing of dozens of camps beyond those that chose to be featured. Our organic listing allows for parents to explore dozens of additional camps on their own. Our sponsors are provided with links and listings above. Thanks for your feedback and we wish you well!
