2021 Summer Camps

There are summer camp guides and then there’s the summer camp guide. We’re so excited to share that the 2021 Busy Little Bee Summer Camp Directory is live!

Although it’s definitely a “guide”, it’s SO MUCH more than that. Our curated list of camps can be easily filtered by category (day camps, sports, and nature, to name a few), by town (from Fairfield to Greenwich), and by age (with some starting at 15 months!). We have everything you could possibly need to know about each camp: general info, session dates, daily schedules, registration links, and more!

Our camps page will be updated daily as schedules are released for additional camps (some of our favorite programs are still ironing out the details). So if you don’t see what you’re looking for, check back often.

We have highlighted some of the best camp options for this summer below!
