Summer is just around the corner and that means plenty of fun time for the family. Whether you’ll be cruising around the Caribbean, visiting theme parks or enjoying Amy’s ice cream, there’s always plenty to do in the summer time. One of our favorite summer rituals is without a doubt the experience of summer camp. For kids, camp holds the promise of new adventures, new friends, and of course, plenty of fun. As adults, camp holds a special place in our hearts with special memoires and unforgettable experiences.
Given Austin’s reputation as being a city with plenty of things to do, the same goes for the number of camps we have in the surrounding area. So if you’re trying to decide where to send the kiddos this year, check out our Summer 2013 Camp Guide.
