Check out 270 listings in a dozen categories.

Summer will be here before we know it. For many families, camps provide a safe place for kids to spend their break, or a welcome chance to keep them active—whether it's exploring subjects such as art or STEM or going on an overnight adventure.

Looking for the right fit for your crew? Columbus Parent is here to help with our annual Summer Camp Guide. This year, we have 270 listings from all over Central Ohio and beyond. There's something to match every kid's interests—and every family's budget.

Listings are divided into Day Camps and Residential Camps, then organized into 12 categories: Art; Dance & Drama; Educational Enrichment; Equestrian; Multiple Category; Music; Nature/Outdoors; Religious; Special Needs; Sports; STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics); and Traditional.
