Are you looking for a summer camp in the areas outside the Triad but still nearby? This list provides a variety of camp options you might want to consider. Scroll down this post to view all of your options. You will always find this list on our directories page here.

*”Full Time Options” are camps that allow campers to arrive prior to the start of camp and stay until 5pm or later. These camps are usually the best choice for working parents. We do still encourage you to check with each camp to confirm their exact times and whether or not they charge an added fee for before and after camp options.

Many camps can fit into more than one category, so if you are searching for a camp for your four-year-old, you can always search beyond the preschool listings. There are also many camp options for teens and tweens, as well as counselor options! If you have camps to add to this list, email Katie@TriadMomsOnMain.com.
