The most anticipated issue of the year is finally here! You hold in your hands the 14th Annual Summer Camp Guide. We are so thankful to have been serving you for 14 years and hope to have many more camp guides in the future. Summer is almost upon us, which means it is almost time for more play, fun in the sun and more days spent together as a family.
However, parents can only be so creative with summer activities and I think it goes without saying that although we love spending more time with the kiddos, we still need the occasional break and so do our kids. Cue the summer camps! Most summer camp registrations are already open, so browse through this directory with your children and let them help pick out what looks fun and exciting for them. For a more in depth look at the summer camps offered, look to the 14th Annual Summer Camp Guide to make your choice! You’ll want to bookmark these pages because there is so much offered in the area and all different dates and times so that your child could attend more than one camp or program this summer.
We offer a big “thank you” to Dogwood Canyon, who is our 14th Annual Summer Camp Guide sponsor. Without their help, this guide would not be possible! Dogwood Canyon is a one-of-a-kind experience for nature lovers and adventure seekers of all ages. Covering 10,000 acres of pristine Ozark Mountain landscape, the park has miles of crystal-clear trout streams, dozens of cascading waterfalls, ancient burial caves, unique hand-built bridges and bottomless, blue-green pools. The walls of the jagged ravines frame a dramatic valley bursting with hardwoods, evergreens and of course, the park’s namesake – Dogwoods. There are literally dozens of activities, and all are family friendly and professionally managed. You can find out more about Dogwood Canyon and the summer programs available at dogwoodcanyon.org.
Have a wonderful April planning out your family summer activities and don’t forget to schedule out some time for yourself too!
From my family to yours,
