I will try to remember to post each Saturday a new summer camp, located in Gainesville and the surrounding areas. Some of these are free right to very expensive. If you need daycare while you work, these camps can be a great asset.

You can select the sessions of your choice and we offer part time and full time enrollment. Integrated into the program is a review of reading, writing and math for our older campers. Sign up is limited!

I wish I could get a list of camps near the Small Town. I don't know what to do with my kids this summer.

I need some ideas of what to do with my kids this summer that is free and fun!

Melissa said...

Anne, I found this local list on Facebook maybe there is one for your area.

Kristy, most are not free, but I will be posting some free ones I found, so check back each Saturday.

Hey Melissa- I don't mind if you copy and paste information from my site - but I'd really appreciate it if you could at least give me credit for the listing - and post a link to my website. Thank-you! has listings for over 250 summer camps in the Gainesville, FL area.
