Start Planning Your Kids’ Summer Activities 2021-Style

Spring is in the air and it’s time to start planning your kids’ summer activities!  You’ll find a broad selection of summer camps and classes by checking out the Seattle’s Child  Summer Camps and Classes Directory, searchable by age, location, type of program, and activity.

After a very long year at home together, parents and kids are ready to jump into summer learning and fun but figuring out the right summer schedule for the kids is never easy. You need to consider the right mix of structured vs free time,  your budget and the kids’ interests.  Now this year, with all our concerns about COVID-19,  making summer plans is even more daunting.

Last summer, not many in-person programs managed to open up given all the concerns related to Covid-19 safety. This year camp directors know what it takes to present a safe and healthy environment for in-person camps.  And virtual camps are a far cry from the “pioneer-days” of online learning in the summer of 2020.

Types of programs featured in the Directory include day and overnight, lessons, team sports, and academic summer sessions.  Activities offered in the Directory include art, dancing, choir, soccer, fencing, swimming, and outdoor skills. Opportunities are available for preschoolers through high schoolers.

Seattle’s Child has been providing our Summer Camps and Classes Directory since 1981 to make planning your kids’ summer activities easier.
