Camp planning just got easy.



Summer Camp Guru is your comprehensive resource for day and overnight camp research.

We go beyond the standard directory with general listings. Our search filters help you pinpoint camps that work for your family. Narrow options by:

  • Activity type

  • Age and gender

  • Date and cost

  • Full or half day

  • Pick-up and drop-off times

  • Area of town


All session details are provided, saving you hours of research time.


Looking to pinpoint specific camps? Examples of questions we can answer faster than Google:

  • Is there a dance camp in my area for my 8-yr-old the week of July 11 where I can pick her up after 5 pm? (use the age, date, time, and minor category filters)

  • What camps are available at the Community Center down the street? (use keyword search - facility)

  • Who has a Harry Potter camp? (use keyword search - session name)

  • Is there anything under $300? (use the cost filter, and then view cost notes and extended care costs in the session details; there is also a scholarship flag)


Make the most of our features.

Members can download data to a spreadsheet, save favorites for each child, and create a schedule to share with friends.
