Huge List of Summer Camps in Grand Rapids and Beyond
Don’t freak out, but summer vacation isn’t that far off. Sure, it’s only late March, and sure, we’re still wearing winter coats around, but we all know that time is going to start flying with end of school activities and sports and time spent outside.
Now is the time to enroll your kids in a Grand Rapids Summer Camp. I did this last year and it was so nice to have our summer calendar planned out in advance. We were able to plan our vacations around important summer camps (like zoo camp and Vacation Bible School) and to make sure that other activities didn’t conflict with each other. If we wanted to take a road trip to Grandma’s, we could plan it without worrying that it would cause someone to miss one of their camps (because if I’m paying good money for this, I hope my kid can go to every day of the program!).
Here is a great list of summer camp options covering all ages, activities, and interests.
Many camps fill up quickly, so make sure to sign up as soon as possible!

Everyone’s got their favorite. What camps do your kids rave about? Know about any neat camps that fly under the radar? Let us know in the comments!
While I do love summer camps, the cost can add up, especially if you have multiple children. I love finding Vacation Bible Schools for my kids because those are usually free. We’ve also compiled this list of Camp Scholarships and Other Low Cost Camps around West Michigan – check back in late March for an updated list!
