Kids Day

Summer is almost here, don’t let your kids waste away their vacation at home! We know it’s hard to juggle working and making sure your little ones stay educated and entertained all summer. That’s why we’ve made a list of the best 13 Tampa summer camps for kids of all ages.

From sports camps to STEM programs and field trip opportunities, Tampa Bay has so many summer camps to choose from. So we’ve made it easier for you to narrow down your choices by providing our favorites and we’ve got all the dates, times, ages, and rates listed right here.

Summer camps can be such an enriching experience for kids. They provide opportunities for children to learn new skills, make new friends, build self-confidence, and learn about independence. How do you choose the right one? Well, you want to make sure that it offers something your child is interested in.

It can be risky to sign them up for an expensive 5-6 week camp for a new experience they might lose interest in quickly. Then it becomes a fight to get your kid out the door during summer to a camp they hate. So if your kid loves soccer, maybe they can join a different sports summer camp to learn new skills that can ultimately help them with their main interests. But they might not have any interest whatsoever in an arts or STEM camp.

We get how expensive summer camps can be, so we also tried narrowing down our search to find the most affordable Tampa summer camps that still offer lots of fun activities.

Whichever camp you decide, register your kid as soon as possible. Some camps give discounts for early registration and you don’t want summer vacation to sneak up on you. See a full list of Hillsborough, Pinellas, and Pasco camps here.
