Guide to Flexible Summer Camps in Lake County

Summer Fun in Lake County

The Little Lake County Summer Camp Guide contains paid listings.

You want to give your kids a camp experience but 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. Tuesday and Thursday (or whatever the combination is) doesn’t work with your busy schedule? As a mom of 4, I get it! This one needs summer school, that one has a volunteer obligation, you have a job, there is a vacation, juggling schedules should be an Olympic sport!  These camps all offer flexible scheduling so everyone can have a camp experience. Whether flexible means – early drop-off or late pick-up, single day or week-long programs or plan as you need it. These camps will help you cover summer.

Trails camp is from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. and Odyssey is from 9 a.m.- 3 p.m.  Extended daycare options for before and after camp care is available for both camps.  Registration Tip: When you register, select the weeks you want, but please note you need to be registered by the Wednesday before the week you need starts. If camp is full you will be placed on a waitlist until a spot opens up. 

Hope to see you this summer.  Your child will make great memories that they will forever treasure.
