It's hard managing your family schedule when both parents work full time; even more so if you're a single parent with a full-time job. By the time you get the school year running smoothly, it's already time to plan for summer. Arranging a full summer of child care is the annual task most moms dread. The lack of true full day options can be frustrating and make you feel like you're the only mom who has a normal 9-to-5 job.

That's why Summer Camp Guru has search filters that allow you to pinpoint camps by drop-off and pick-up times. We also provide the details on extended care for each weekly session. See how it works:

So how much is it going to cost?

Cost varies widely and depends on the activity type, counselor ratio, and amenities. You will get a very different experience from a traditional day camp where you play games and go on field trips vs. a high-end technology camp with certified classroom teachers. However, there is something for all budgets and interests (albeit not all locations).

The average cost of a full day Triad summer camp is $197, ranging from $60 to $426.

  • based on weekly session data from 125 camp providers in the Triad area

  • includes the cost of before- and aftercare if applicable

  • coverage from 8:30 AM to 5:30 PM - there are only 46 providers
