I'm always so caught off guard with summer camp sign ups - they seem to happen way sooner than I expect and then I miss them altogether! So here's an attempt to help get us all on our A-game as we search for Boise Area Summer Camps for our kids for Summer 2022.
Here are two AWESOME resources to start with!
Totally Boise: https://totallyboise.com/Spring-Summer-Camps-in-Boise
Boise Summer Camps: https://boisesummercamps.org/
I know I'll never be able to create a totally epic, 100% complete list but I figured I'd at least create a "working document" of things I hear about and update this as often as I can so email me info at email@example.com, message me on Facebook or Instagram or leave a comment below!
