Summer Camp Guru was developed to give parents a centralized tool for summer camp planning. All the details you need are in one place. The search filters help you narrow options by activity, part of town, dates, times, and ages. You can create different profiles for each child and save your favorite options for future reference. You don’t even have to make your own spreadsheet!
One mom summed it up perfectly:
Thank you SO much! Because of this database, I was able to give my kids so many choices for camps. Before I had three options because I had no time to search through all the info but being able to look in one place, filter, sort and download really improved my planning process. Thank you for putting this together.

There’s no magic story as to how Summer Camp Guru got started. It was an offhand comment from a friend who thought I sounded knowledgeable about day camps: Why don’t you start a camp planning service?
I had discovered the nightmare of summer camp planning when I had a full-time job and two young kids. I found there was no comprehensive directory with a good search feature. Every time I thought I found a promising camp session it turned out to be on the other side of town and ended at 4pm.
It seemed ridiculous that moms all across town were doing this same spreadsheet exercise every spring. Why not house all the information we need in one place?
I’m not a programmer, graphic designer, or online marketer. I’m a CPA, financial reporting analyst, and custom dressmaker. I leveraged my data management and reporting skills to create a resource to help other moms. I’m figuring out the other stuff as I go along.
I hope Summer Camp Guru saves you time and helps you discover camps you didn’t know about.
