I know it is early, but my understanding is that now is the time to start finding/signing up for summer camps.

Anyone have suggestions on good camps in the SW Durham/Chapel Hill area? Also any idea on the price of these camps etc?

Thanks

Day camps or overnight? Any particular activities you're focusing on?

I have been soliciting the same feedback elsewhere as I'll have several weeks of camp to fill. I've heard very good things about the Piedmont Wildlife Center camps. My child will be trying a spring break camp there soon.

Summer Camp 2010 | Piedmont Wildlife Center (http://www.piedmontwildlifecenter.org/summercamp10 - broken link)

Also down that way, I have also heard good things about the camps at Carolina Friends School, Spence's Farm, and the Museum of Life and Science (they have camps both on site at the museum and in Chapel Hill at one of the elementary schools).

For years, my daughter and her friends went to New Life Camp (North Raleigh) and Camp Oak Hill. They are overnight church related camps.

If you prefer days only, you may want to check the Raleigh Parks and Rec. This may be too far for you but I would think that maybe chapel Hill would also have a parks and rec.

The Annual Carolina Parent Summer Camps Fair is coming up February 21 at St. Mary's in the afternoon. Always a great source of local and regional camps for all ages.

A lot is going to depend on the ages of your children.

Some ideas of camps my DD has loved:
-NC Musuem of Life and Science-there are options in Durham at the museum, at Estes Elementary in CH and I believe in Cary.
-Morehead Planetarium
-Artscenter
-CH YMCA
-Little Gym
-Camp Kanata-overnight camp in Wake Forest

Some other options that I have heard good things about:
-IMACS
-Dancentre
-Chapel Hill Ballet School
-Spence's Farm

I guess you meant day camps but you can also search here for overnight camps.

Bottom line, there are TONS of camps. We've done soccer camps, tennis camps, Y camps, art camps, drama camps, cub scout camps, and a video game design camp. (All day camps.) Prices have ranged from a couple hundred to about six hundred for the week.
