Summer is just around the corner. Are you ready? I’m not talking about swimsuit shopping (can I get a few more months on that one??) but about something much more fun… Summer Camps!

Summer camps are a great way to keep kids learning, growing, and having fun with friends all summer long.

Be sure to check out the Play Frisco guide, a terrific resource from Frisco Parks and Recreation. They offer camps for every imaginable age and interest!

Camps across Frisco tend to fill up quickly so now is the perfect time to make your plans. We did our best to compile a comprehensive list but I’m sure we’ve missed a few. Please feel free to share your favorites in the comments box below.
