COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - It’s that time of year again, parents... summer camp season.

We found a website with a comprehensive list of dozens of camps in the Colorado Springs area. There is a variety of categories, prices, time frames, and options for all ages.

“I think it’s important to keep [kids] occupied,” said Abby Merican, a mom of two girls, ages 8 and 10. “With the long break they have off over the summer, it can get a little bit stagnant or drive people crazy.”

Pandemic restrictions last summer forced many camps to be scaled back or cancelled. This year, parents we talked to said, they expect their children will enjoy a normal-feeling summer.

“They were quite surprised they didn’t have to wear the masks when they came back,” Merican added. Her daughters are enrolled in a summer camp at Life Time Fitness.
“I think they are enjoying reading their peers expressions, and understanding, and reading their social queues a lot more.”

Many camps still have enrollment open, so there’s still time to register.
