We are here to help you locate summer camps for those hard to find age groups, including teenagers and PRESCHOOLERS! It seems there are plenty of camps for elementary age kids, but we’ve also tracked down local camps for ages 5 & under.

{Side note – this is how Lakeland Mom got started – I was searching for summer camps when my kids were 4 & 6 and had a hard time finding anything for the younger one, so I decided I’d make a website where I could list summer camps!}

If you’re looking for a summer camp in the Lakeland or Winter Haven area for your son or daughter that is preschool age or younger, this list is for you. There is no set theme for these camps, other than the ages they cover from infant through entering kindergarten.

**EDITOR’S NOTE – We will do our best to update the Summer Camp Guide through May and June with changes for Summer 2020. For the most up to date information click through to the camp’s website.**
