2021 Guide to Summer Camps

Fort Worth Moms compiles a list of summer camps in the Tarrant County area.

Disclaimer :: The “Guide to Summer Camps” is brought to you by Fort Worth Moms and the many camp sponsors listed in this post. Thank you to our partners who made this guide possible! 

It seems — and we say that crossing our fingers while petting a lucky rabbit’s foot and looking for four-leaf clovers — that life is slowly returning to normal, and that means summer camps are a GO. It may look different with face masks and hand sanitizer, but we are thankful for those precautions if it means keeping our children safe.

We need to take a moment to THANK our wonderful sponsors. Because of our partners, FWM has been able to come through on the other side of this, bringing guides and resources to mothers in Tarrant County and beyond.

Fort Worth Moms (FWM) put together a great list of summer camps for all ages, stages, and interest levels. From sports to art, and from computer to nature, you’re sure to find something listed that will appeal to your child. We hope this is a helpful resource as you make summer plans for your family! 

Wondering if overnight camp is too much for your kiddo? Check out “Is Your Child Ready for Summer Camp.” And while kiddo is waiting to head off to summer camp, hunt for cicadas together, or teach a new responsibility or two.

  1. I’ve spent months researching camp options, a few of the above have had recent changes and no longer offer in person camps. If parents need that and not virtual camps for which you’ll have to help your child, please be aware that’s a possibility, even at River Legacy.

    • Thank you so much for letting us know! We’ve reached out to all of the camps listed and are working diligently to get the information as up-to-date as possible.
