2024 Local Summer Camp Guide | The North Shore Moms
Local-Summer-Camp-Guide-Header-2024

I’m so excited for the return of The North Shore Moms Local Summer Camp Guide! This was one of our most popular posts last year and as a local parent myself, I know that choosing the right summer camp for your child can be a daunting task.

This Guide includes several featured camps from sports, to STEAM, to art, to adventure camps and more! Plus a list of additional camps by category and links to town recreation summer programs.

Keep reading to learn more about each camp, including age requirements and enrollment links.

And if your child is ready for sleepaway camp, don’t worry! Our National 2024 Sleepaway Camp and Program Guide from The Local Moms Network is coming soon too.
