Selecting a Summer Camp

Summer is quickly approaching and now is the time to start looking for summer camps or programs for your child.

Summer camps and programs are available in different settings, such as school-based programs, parks and recreation programs, youth service agencies, family child care homes, specialty camps and child care centers. The Child Care Resource and Referral (CCR&R) program offered by your local early learning coalition can provide you with a list of available summer camps in your area, including those offered by your school district.
