Top 10 Summer Camps

Summer, oh summer – you are almost here….. and yes again it is time to think about Summer Programs for the kids. Whether you are a stay at home mom or a working mom or an “in between” whatever that means, we all need the info!

As you probably know there are plenty of camp options in Miami, so how to choose? Our recommendations have always pointed to exploring and discovering those talents that help awaken our kids to find their passions. Basically, every kid is different and summer should be seen as an opportunity to explore the individual potential of each child while enjoying the great outdoor and nature offerings that Miami has.

You will find that there are many options out there, but what makes our recommendations unique is that we do take the time to research and ask questions. Plus, we are moms and kind of know what we are looking for.


Like previous years, we have used different criteria to select our TOP 10; we have selected favorites according to main categories that are important to us and considered the needs of moms with kids of all ages. We have taken into consideration goals of programs, training of staff members, facilities, safety, enrollment options, the ratio of nature to indoor activities and other important considerations.
