  • TOP 10 Summer Camp Programs 2016!

    Hi there, every year at this time; some of you ask me the same question that I ask myself – summer is right around the corner – What are my options for Summer with the kids? I know I will be away for a few weeks on “vacation”  but what about the rest of the summer?

    As you probably know there are plenty of camp options in Miami, so how to choose? Our recommendations have always pointed to exploring those unique talents that make your kid vibrate and shine. Basically, every kid is different and summer should be seen as an opportunity to explore the individual potential of each child while enjoying the great outdoor and nature offerings that Miami has.

    You will find that there are many options out there, but what makes our recommendations unique is that we do take the time to research and ask questions. Plus, we are moms and kind of know what we are looking for.

    Our TOP 10 this year have been brought to you by Freddo, our Summer Sponsor. We have used different criteria to select our TOP 10 this year; we have selected favorites according to main categories that are important to us and considered the needs of moms with kids of all ages.

Without further ado here are our TOP 10 Summer Camp Programs 2016!
