Many of us experienced summer camps as children, filled with plenty of play, sports, games, swimming, and arts & craft activities. Consequently, many of us want our children to experience the same! Thankfully, the Bay Area offers many of these types of camps for children so your kids can have fun too. Here are some of the best we have found in the Bay Area!
