Tara S. asks:
“Do you have information on summer camps in the area? If not, I would be very interested in that information, along with recommendations from folks whose children went to those camps.”
My reply to Tara:
I’m not up on all of the summer camp options around here.
I do recall an excellent review of summer camps in a previous issue of Williamson Parent or Nashville Parent magazine (the ones you see at grocery stores around here… they’re free).
It’s been a couple of years since I read that article, but it was really thorough and is probably archived somewhere. Besides, I think they do something similar every year — run a list of upcoming summer camps & programs.
Summer Camp Resources
These are the best resources I could find with regard to summer camps in the area:
- Tennessean Articles About Summer Camps
- Summer Camp Fair Every Winter (Jan/Feb)
- List of Summer Camps In Nashville
- Local Day Camps
And this list of the best summer camps in the area ran in the Nashville Scene:
1. YMCA Camp Widjiwagan
2. Whippoorwill Farm Day Camp
3. Superstars at Hillboro Presbyterian Church
I hope that helps.
Maybe some Williamson County parents can add their opinions summer camps & programs they’re familiar with in the Comments below.
Important: Before you send your child to camp, be sure to read this CBS Early Show report which shows the importance of finding a licensed and accredited camp. (Don’t miss the video!)
I like to help people find unique ways to do things in order to save time & money — so I write about “outside the box” ideas that most wouldn’t think of. As a lifelong dog owner, I often share my best tips for living with and training dogs. I worked in Higher Ed over 10 years before switching gears to pursue activities that I’m truly passionate about. I’ve worked at a vet, in a photo lab, and at a zoo — to name a few. I enjoy the outdoors via bicycle, motorcycle, Jeep, or RV.
