“So, what camps are we doing this summer?’  This was the hot topic at my daughter’s soccer tournament over the weekend.  Busy moms have been scrambling all month to get Valentine’s cards, teacher gifts, spring break plans booked and still manage to leave work early enough to pick up siblings and get to basketball games and soccer practice on time.  We are all caught up in the day to day, but summer will be here before we know it.  And a little planning can help make summer a breeze for kids and busy mom’s and dad's alike.

No matter what your child’s age or interests are, you will be sure to find some awesome ideas in The Williamson Herald’s Summer Camp Guide to keep them engaged, enlightened and entertained this summer.  

The pace of summer is laid back and a welcomed change from the chaos of fall and winter.  Summer is the perfect time to revisit outside interests that cannot compete during the regular school year.  

A little planning ahead will help ensure your kids are busy this summer - which will help parents breathe a collective sigh of relief.   There is nothing worse than not having a plan and getting the dreaded comment from your kids..."What is the plan for today...I am bored."

Whether it is your inner artist, athlete or historian - Williamson County has a camp for you.

For the horse lover there is Peachtree Farms and Creekside Riding Stables, both locally owned and have a great reputation for teaching kids to ride and care for horses.

Several sports camps, art camps and traditional week long adventure and overnight camps await for your campers young and old.  

Today’s kids are over scheduled, and have little downtime between all their extracurricular interests and schoolwork throughout the school year.   

Summer is a time for flip flops and bare feet, staying up late, and sleeping in, s’mores by the fire and wading in the creek.  

And yes, creating memories with friends at Summer Camp.
