2021 Summer Camp Guide to Wichita & Surrounding Areas - The Wichita Moms Network

This school year is finally coming to a close and our county is starting to open back up. The weather is getting warmer and kids are getting anxious for a break from school. Summer is almost here!

Get ahead of the game and get your kids registered for camp nice and early this year! Many are operating under limited capacity due to COVID-19 protocols, so space may be limited. Not to mention, registering early might even save you a few bucks!

The Wichita Moms Network 2021 Guide to Summer Camps is here to help make the decision and registration process quick and easy, with all the info you need in one place! Scroll down for a list of local day camps, sports camps, academic camps and more! You’ll find the all the information below for each camp!

Please check back often! We will be making updates as registrations open and we will provide 2021 COVID-19 protocols for camps as soon as the state of Kansas releases that information.
