2022 All Around Camps - Westport Moms

Choosing a Camp for your Kids is a Daunting Task!

We put this guide together in hopes of streamlining the process and providing key pieces of information about most of the local day camps in our area! To help you navigate all of the information, we have organized the camps into categories, or you can scroll through them all if you’d prefer! If you are looking for sleep-away camp information, feel free to email our very own, Melissa Post at [email protected], and she can work with you (at no cost) to come up with a list of camps based on your family (and child’s) needs/interests!
