I'm hoping someone out there has had some recent experience with children's day camps in the Salisbury area. My 5 year old son is attending a camp right now, but I'm not sure its the best option for his age group. The camp takes kids ages 5-13 and right now the bulk of the kids he's with are 8 -13 years old. He is the youngest (he's the only boy under age 8) and that sometimes makes it difficult for him to keep up, understand the games, join in the conversation, etc. He keeps trying though and says he likes the camp, though he is scared some of the older kids might hurt him (mostly by accident, but there is one bully in the group).

My husband and I both work full time, so we need a safe place for him to have fun all summer. We did some research and found very few camps that were all day (without an arm and a leg in extra fees for drop offs before 9 or pick ups after 3) and all summer.

Any suggestions? We're aware of the programs at the YMCA (I've heard mixed reviews), Parks and Rec and the Salisbury School's Camp Odyssey. Are there others? What have you heard or experienced with either those listed or others that I'm not aware of?

Default re: day camps

Have you looked at Flora's Fitness in Fruitland? I believe they have programs for children of all ages?

I have a 14 year old. Most camps stop keeping kids after 13. Anyone have any idea where we can send him this summer?

Hello ull3222, in the above posts you will find a lot of information about our summer camp at Mitchell's Martial Arts here in Salisbury, MD. Our summer camp is primarily designed for children up to the age of 13. HOWEVER, we have some very exciting news! We accept older kids into our fantastic Leadership and Assistant Camp Couselor program. Our program called CAMP X is for older kids and they get to participate in a lot of exciting things such as laser tag, go-carts, water parks, and paintball! We know your child will have a blast here this summer SO, Please call us today at 410-341-0333 and we will be happy to answer your questions and schedule an appointment for your family to tour our facility.



Thank you and we look forward to meeting your family.
