    Resources to Find Camps:

    ActivityRocket: Search for camps based on interest, location, date and time and share information with friends. You can sign up for emails to get registration openings and deadlines reminders. They also offer early bird specials.

    CertifiKid: The daily deals site is always updating its camp deals. We found some camps more than 40 percent off.

    CampEasy: Search by metro area and by area of interest, such as performing arts or outdoor exploration.

    Tips to save money and time:

    • Start looking NOW - many early bird savings expire March 1.
    • Ask about sibling discounts, multi-week discounts, and refer-a-friend discounts.
    • Recruit a group of kids and approach a camp director and negotiate a group discount.
    • Don't forget your community colleges. Montgomery College, for example, offers summer youth programs including Minecraft Camps, Financial Fitness for Teens, Secret Agent Camp, Duct Tape Art Camp.

    Some camps fill up fast - so sign up NOW:
