Summer Camps for Kids under the age of 6

How to find Camps for the Youngest Kids

It’s not always easy to find Summer Care and fun camps for Kids who are not at Grade School yet. They need a smaller environment and have specific needs that only some Camps can provide.

So we set about finding those Summer Camps nearby.

Summer Camps for Toddlers 2+

spring break camps

For working parents, Summer Camps are a great option to use when Preschools, Childcare centers or in-home carers or an employed Nanny are on vacation. However, for young children, not all Summer Camps are available options or are suitable for Toddler aged boys and girls.

In our Summer Camp Guide, we have an easy way to search through according to Age to see which Camps have Summer Camp options for our Younger Kids.

Toddler Summer Camps

The daytime needs of our younger Kids are different to the older ones, as they might need Naps, Breaks and a combination of activities in a safe and smaller environment with closer supervision.

Around Plano, Frisco, Dallas and our surrounding cities, there are some great options for younger campers.

The following list provides ideas for toddler summer programs in and around Plano.

Dallas International School

Dallas International School

For ages 3 – 17.

The DIS Summer Enrichment Camp is a 6-week program open to all and designed to provide campers with the opportunity to explore a wide range of activities in a safe and caring environment. Our camp is designed to give campers ages 3 to 17 experiential learning activities and a chance to explore a wide range of interests in a safe and caring environment.

Campers may enroll in a full or half-day program for any combination of activities they choose. For example, a child may sign up for a morning of French camp and an afternoon of cooking or art workshop. 

Small activity groups of 8 to 10 students are created based on age and skills.  

Students enrolled in a full-day program are automatically signed up for lunch at no additional cost.  

Our extended day option allows parents to drop off their children as early as 7:30 am and pick them up as late as 6:00 pm. During those hours, parents have the option of signing up their children for special activities such as one-on-one piano lessons or art workshops.

The camps for our younger students (up to age 10) are offered at the Churchill campus while the ones for older students (ages 11 and up) are offered at our Waterview campus. A shuttle service will be available for families with students on both campuses.
