Search Tips

  1. Start with a broader search and then narrow as needed with ‘Minor Category’ or ‘Minor Area’, unless you are looking for something very specific.

  2. If you get too many results you can narrow your search by clicking the filter icon in the upper left.

  3. Looking for full day camps? Include half day options in your search. If the Full day combo field says yes, then it is possible to combine two half-day camps at the same location, with a supervised lunch period. 

  4. Before comparing camp costs, take into account extended care fees and discounts or registration fees.

  5. Please confirm all details on the camp provider’s website prior to finalizing plans. The information on Summer Camp Guru does not reflect current registration availability.

  6. Check the box on the scholarship filter to search for camps that offer financial assistance.

  7. Camps are added as the information becomes available. Sign up here to be notified when sessions that meet your criteria are posted.

  8. If you're an early planner, try leaving the date field blank so you get an idea of what will be offered. Your search results will include last year's sessions for camps that aren't updated yet.
