2013 summer camp listings

Summer is less than three months away, so it won’t be too long before the kiddos are out of school and moping around the house saying they have nothing to do or are bored.

You can change that by making plans now for summer camps.

Below is a listing of some area camps and information about each. Some camps offer weeklong or day camps for a variety of interests.
