Miami Shores Summer Camps – 2008

It is that time of the year again to tell you about Miami Summer Camps. We received a couple of phone calls last month asking why our article wasnt up and the truth is that most summer camps are organized at the very last minute and the information was not available. (maybe its a Miami Thing…could it be a “Miamism?”)

Miami Summer Camps

Planning for summer camps for the kids can be very stressful because you dont even know where to begin. Hopefully this list will make it easier for you and will serve as a guide. If I miss any camps, feel free to add them to the comment section for others to see. Most of you know that I have 3 kids of different ages, and not only have we done a lot of research on summer camps, we have also visited a lot of these in person as well as have sent our kids and have first hand experience. Hopefully this information will be helpful to local families to find activities for their kids as well as those families that are in Miami for the summer. ***MIAMI SHORES SUMMER CAMPS – (organized by The Miami Shores Recreation Department).
