Summer break is a major occurrence for kids. The temps are heating up, the pools are opening, and it’s once again time to replace school with endless fun. Unfortunately, most kids (and, let’s be honest, parents) reach a point where they get a little burnt out by the break. Summer camps are perfect for preventing this fatigue. Not only do they break up the long months, but they let your child get a chance to learn more about their favorite hobbies. If you’re browsing through OKC Summer Camps, I’m here to give you a quick rundown of some of our family’s favorites!
If you have an adventurous kiddo, Riversport is the perfect destination! The center provides week-long camps where your child can canoe, kayak, climb, hike, and fish. Riversports recently expanded their selection to include esports. Your child will be able to attend for full-day or half-day sessions. The OKC summer camp provides all the equipment as well as nourishing snacks. And for those who want to turn the camp into a family vacation, Riversports has a number of partner hotels.
Young artists across the city will adore AR Workshop. This Edmond location has plenty of options to add some variety to your summertime. AR is a franchise that specializes in getting people of all ages crafting. From stylish yet cozy pillows to colorful macrame, the studio has tons of hands-on lessons. The studio accepts children ages 7-17 and invites them to attend camps ranging anywhere from 1-5 days. You can browse their stacked schedule and find the right OKC Summer Camp option for your crafty kid!
Every year, the OKC Zoo hosts summer camps for kids ages 4-12. The zoo has full-day camps that get them up close and personal with their favorite place. Your child will get to participate in themed weeks while getting to learn all about the animals and the habitat in which they live. The camp teaches everything from animal predators and prey to the signage you find around the campus. All you need to provide is a morning and afternoon snack as well as lunch.
St. Mary’s is an Episcolian school that has multiple options for your family. Younger kids entering into St. Mary’s school can attend part-time practice preschool that lets them get a sneak peek at the year to come. Older St. Mary’s students can attend enrichment camps that last up to a month long. Your child will learn about science, create artistic masterpieces, practice coding, and more! Just bring lunch, and they’ll bring the fun!
