I am a planner at heart. I love planning but hate surprises. So if you are like me, you should have mapped out your kids’ summer schedule by now. If not, and you haven’t had the time yet (like you aren’t busy enough) here are some of my findings after relentless hours of searching for summer camps and VBSs. I can’t believe not all organizations have their summer schedules out! Also, please note that my searches were based on what my soon-to-be six year old son can do or like.
Summer Blast at Friends Church Yorba Linda – This is a faith based summer camp for kids in 1st grade through 6th grade. Registration is now open! Go!
United Methodist Church Yorba Linda Preschool – Eight weeks of summer camp for preschoolers through 1st grade, and you can pay daily or weekly. Contact the school for details.
Community Guide – Check out your local community guide (Yorba Linda’s community guide is mailed out the first week of April) for daily or weekly camps and other fun day camps.
Oak Canyon Nature Center in Anaheim – There are weekly themed summer camps that offer outdoor hikes and fun activities. For kids ages 5-12. Registration is open
Local YMCA – check out your local YMCA for sports camps.
The Rock Community Church –For 5th and 6th graders. In Lake Mead.
Vacation Bible Schools
Rose Drive Friends Church – week of June 20th. It’s FREE!!!! Registration is open.
The Rock Community Church – week of June 20th. For kids 4 years through 6th grade. $15. Registration is open.
Friends Church Yorba Linda – week of August 1st. Registration is not open yet and it is not free.
Us in the Son at St Martin Catholic Church – four weeks total but you can go any week you choose if available. Registration is not open yet and there will be a fee.
United Methodist Church Yorba Linda – week of July 27th. Registration is not open yet.
These are just a few of the options currently available but as we approach the summer months, I know a large number of activities will be listed on the internet. If you are a SAHM, don’t forget our local parks and beaches. In addition to summer camps and vacation bible schools, we also plan to visit the Fullerton Arboretum, Knotts Berry Farm, The Discovery Cube Science Center, and other fun local places.
Keep those kiddos busy and hydrated this summer!
If you have any other ideas/suggestions, please share!
