Popular kids’ summer camps book up fast. The good news is there is no shortage of choice when it comes to camps in the Bay Area.

Berkeleyside’s 2020 Summer Camp Guide, launched today, helps you choose the best one for your family: it’s a directory of paid-for listings and your one-stop shop to a great summer for your kids — and for you.

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, sailing 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.

You can search the directory style of camp activity and location. Check it out for an entrée into some amazing summer experiences for your kids.
