Handy Info about our exclusive Summer Camp Search
Our exclusive Summer Camp Search can help our wonderful parents to find the ideal summer camp. We have over 1,700 summer camps in our database with a number of search filters in the sidebar to narrow it down to that ideal outdoor experience.
The top set of search options allows parents to choose locations, ages, genders, lengths, and financial aid availability.
Moving further down on the sidebar, you'll find over 100 activities from water sports, animal interactions, arts, life skills and much more.
Towards the bottom of the side bar, you'll be able to explore other popular options such as faith-based, pro training, college-based, group affiliations, and more.
Once you have selected your filters, hit one of the "Apply Filters" buttons to see if there is a summer camp that perfectly matches those selected filters.
We also have a handy "Clear All Filters" button if you want to explore a new set of options.
We recommend that you begin with just a few selections to start with a wide range of camp matches. Then as you filter down the options, the search filters will change to only show options and activities that are already matching your selected filters.
With our exclusive Summer Camp Search, parents have an almost limitless number of ways to create their own uniquely customized lists of summer camps.
These States have the highest concentration of summer camps in the US. The list is mainly comprised of States found in the eastern regions of the country. Being the first areas in the country to be settled, they have had the opportunity to develop a deeper history.

Keep in mind that there are differences in the camp culture and conditions between the summer camps in different regions of the US. For example, most West Coast summer camps operate in 1 to 2 week sessions for kids and teens. Whereas on the East Coast, the sessions traditionally start at 2 weeks and go all the way up to 8 weeks.
When thinking about which States have the most summer camps, we also take into consideration the population of the State. For example, Ohio and New Hampshire have the same number of summer camps. But Ohio has 10 times the population of New Hampshire.
To us, this could reflect that New Hampshire has fostered a stronger tradition over the past decades of families sending their kids to summer camp. Though I'm sure that the majesty of those beautiful New England trails have played their part pulling adults and kids alike into the outdoors.
We understand the challenge that parents can have in trying to figure out how to pick and prepare their kids and teens for summer camp. Our summer camp blog covers a range of important areas of camp. We take you into the inner workings of camp with insights from over a decade of experience working in the industry.
