We are spoilt for choice when it comes to summer camps in the Bay Area, but the best ones book up fast, so it’s never too early to plan where your kids will go. Which is why today we launch Berkeleyside’s brand new 2017 Summer Camp Guide.

Camps have been shown to help improve kids’ health, improve their ability to get along with others, enhance thinking, problem-solving and resiliency skills, as well as boost self-esteem.

Whether you’re thinking theater or science, nature or music, coding or skateboarding, our directory of summer camps, with full details provided by the organizers, runs the gamut and offers something for every kid out there, whatever their interests.

The guide is also searchable by activity, grade level and city. Check it out.
