Looking for a summer camp for your child? We get a lot of requests from parents for inexpensive summer camps, so we’ve put together a list of resources for you to explore.
Charlotte Observer’s Summer Camp Database
This summer camp database compiled by the Charlotte Observer lets you search for camps based on location, type of camp, months, camp sponsor or camp description. You can’t search by price (maybe next year, Charlotte Observer?)
Charlotte Parent has put together a list of summer camps. You can search by type of camp, geographic area or name of camp.
