I cannot believe we have less than one month left of school! Planning for summer camps for the kids can be very stressful because you don't even know where to begin.
Since we do have 3 kids of different ages, we have done lots of research on summer camps in or close to Miami Shores for our own children and wanted to share this information to make it easier for local families to find activities for their kids. Please keep in mind that we are not sponsoring any of these camps and do advise that you do your own additional research. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call us either, our kids have attended a lot of these camps, and we can give you the "kids' perspective".
