It may only be March, but summer is coming! If you’re already thinking about summer camps, you’ll want to check out one of the newest options for North Alabama. We caught up with Kidcam Camps to learn more about their programming and how to enjoy the spirit of summer with them.
At Kidcam, day camp isn’t just something we do, it’s all we do! That’s why we have been the trusted name in summer camps by thousands of families for almost 50 years.
Our mission is to bring the Spirit of Summer to life by creating memorable moments and lasting relationships, through a powerful summer camp experience that inspires greatness and brings smiles to faces. This year we will rediscover the Spirit of Summer by letting kids be kids through the power of camp! Kidcam campers (aka Rockstars) will feel that they are a part of something truly special, while they revel in a summer of friendship, adventure and wonder!
What Makes Kidcam Camps Special?
Kidcam Summer Camps offers 7-9 weeks (depending on location) of day camp that is action-packed with activities that promote fun, fitness, friendship and creativity. Campers celebrate a different theme each week while participating in Kidcam traditions, sports, creative arts, STEM, movement, specialty programs, swimming and water play.
