Fayetteville Summer Camps For All

The kids are officially out of school and it won’t be long before boredom starts setting in. Summer camps are a great way to not only help your children make some of their fondest memories of the season, but these camps also give you back some of those daytime hours you’re used to them being out of the house!

No matter what your child is interested in, there is likely a camp in Fayetteville, Fort Bragg and Cumberland County that meets both their needs and yours. Here are some of the popular area camps this season that range from arts to sports to academics:

  • YMCA of Fayetteville: The Y-Palooza day camp gives kids an active and adventurous experience with themed weeks that include daily projects, games and outside playtime, a field trip, swimming and more! Designed for six- to 13-year-olds, participants learn new games and skills all while developing their confidence and character.
  • Fayetteville Academy Summer Odyssey: A variety of fun weekly camps suiting both the academic and sports loving child are available for students ages three through high school. Applications are accepted from all students, regardless of where they go to school during the regular academic year, and spaces are filling up quickly!
