Brace yourselves — Summer is coming. Lucky for you, we’ve put together this handy list of ways to keep your adorable little monsters occupied. Click the headlines for more information.

National Athletic Village

If they’ve been spendin’ most their quarantine lives livin’ with something that needs a storage device, they’ll ~love~ summer camp at the National Athletic Village. Camps started June 1 and run through Aug. 14 for kids aged 6-14, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.


  • By implementing a low camper-to-coach ratio that meets social distancing requirements
  • By keeping camps all-outdoors and all-weather. Pack rain gear. 
  • By encouraging frequent hand washing and sanitizing
  • By offering four price options — full day / full week ($275); half day / full week ($185); or a single full day ($65) or half day ($40). Register here.

Encore Center Summer Camps

From art to dance and musical theatre for ages 3 to 18, the Encore center offers your kid all the creativity with none of the KIDZ BOP. Classes in the center’s 9,500-square-foot center are limited to 9 students for every one teacher, and students’ temperatures will be taken upon arrival. See the huge list of options here.

Liberty Soccer Academy

You’ve been waiting for in-person recess since school went virtual, and Liberty Soccer Academy is coming to the rescue with a full slate of camps for ages 3-14 at Cannon Park in Pinehurst — from hour-long sessions for the littlest kickers to half-day ball mastery camps for those 7-14.

This U.S. Club Soccer-Sanctioned academy, which focuses on youth development both on and off the field, is keeping coach-to-player ratios low for each of its six weeks. Reserve your spot here.
