We love the lazy days of summer, but sometimes it’s great for the kids to maintain some structure, get out of the house, and learn something new. Hello, summer camp! It’s not too late to send ‘em to a camp or two (or more!) to keep their minds and bodies active. We’ve rounded up some great day camps in the Mountain House area that cover every interest and hobby imaginable, so get your calendar out and get the kids moving this summer!
City-based parks and recreation camps
