Summer is quickly approaching, and Central Florida is a great place to spend the season. Here are a few sleepaway camps and daytime programs that will add more fun for the kiddos.

We’re looking forward to the slow summer months. Long days, sweet treats, and beach trips await us … along with the impending boredom of our kids. 

When deciding on the perfect summer camp, parents should consider activities offered, standard pricing, and inclusivity. To take some of the pressure off, we have compiled a list of well-loved and reputable opportunities around Central Florida. Ranging from day-long activities to sleepaway camps, these adventurous and educational programs are sure to keep kids busy all summer long.


Bricks4Kidz is the perfect day program for Lakelanders with kids in elementary school. It hosts students as they learn to build models and code using an interactive LEGO robotics platform, allowing them to get a head start on STEM training and make friends along the way.
