Summer Camp Guide 2021

In Kiddos by Lola Magazine

With just a few weeks left on the school calendar, the countdown to summer is officially underway! Parents and kids alike are anticipating the lax schedule and outdoor activities that are synonymous with summer fun. We are already daydreaming about hours spent poolside, letting Mom steal away time to read her favorite novel (we can all dream, right?). Or maybe you are fantasizing about that weeklong family vacation in the mountains or on a faraway beach somewhere (pandemics are not barred from daydreams, too!). Perhaps it is even the simple things like time spent grilling a delicious meal to enjoy with friends on your back patio.

As much as we love all the simple pleasures of summer, truth be told, the 10-week stretch comes with moments that are not quite as lovely. There are days spent battling with kids over tablet time. Afternoons telling the kids to go play outside while they insist that it is far too hot for them to endure. And days where you feel like if you were rewarded with a dollar every time someone said, “I’m bored” that you could at least afford a long weekend by yourself somewhere … anywhere.   

Our 2021 Summer Camp Guide is here to help! Stretching across North Louisiana, from the Shreveport-Bossier area into Ruston and Monroe, there are summer day camps that can prevent brain drain and keep your kids physically and mentally engaged until school starts back in August.

There is a camp for every kid, whatever their interests may be. Our area provides day camps that cover everything from Lego-building to coding and STEAM activities, performing arts, painting, and crafts. There are sports camps for every athlete, including soccer, karate, rock climbing, and horseback riding.

Summer camp is an opportunity for your child to try something that has always piqued their interest or a chance to get additional instruction and progress in an activity they’ve always loved. According to the American Camp Association, the benefits of summer camp are far-reaching. Children develop social skills like leadership, communication, and participation, as well as developing self-respect and character by learning responsibility, resourcefulness and resilience. Children also develop a greater understanding of community living and service by learning fairness, caring and citizenship.

Let our Summer Camp Guide be your first resource for creating an exciting summer for your children that is filled with engaging activities and lifelong memories that they will talk about for years to come.
