duluth summer camp

Many Twin Ports area camps do not have all of their summer activity details solidified yet, as state and local pandemic guidelines are constantly changing and we are still living in a time of unknowns. BUT Duluth Mom wants to bring to you the information we do know, so you can keep these camps in mind as you start to plan summer fun for your families!

This past year has definitely shown us how important both rhythms and socialization are for our kiddos’ mental health and happiness. We need to keep them learning β€” even if we sneak it in by utilizing structured and fun summer camps!

Bookmark this page in your phone or browser so you can refer back to it often, as new camps and updated details will be added. Also, don’t forget to utilize our planning printable/download we have included!
