Budget-Friendly and Affordable Summer Camps Near You: $160 or Less Per Week

Looking for affordable summer camps near you? We know summer camps can get pricey, especially with multiple children, or for working parents who utilize camps most weeks during the summer.

While free summer camps are rare, we can help you find cheaper summer camps in Lakeland and Polk County. These budget-friendly camps are $160 or less per week per kid AND fall into the category of full-day camps, lasting 6 or more hours per day.

(There are some other camps that are less than $160 per week but are half-day camps – you can find them in our full Summer Camp Guide)

No Limits Sports Summer Camps

No Limits Sports Camp is a fun way for kids to experience several different sports or focus on their primary sport of choice. Campers get to choose which sport they want to work on each session of the day including basketball, volleyball, soccer, flag football, bocci, and baseball. Campers will be taught the basic fundamentals of each sport and given an opportunity to use those skills in team games.

Camp also includes group games and water day on Fridays. Campers get a camp shirt each week they attend until they have all 5 camp shirts. Both half Day (8am – 1pm) and full day (7am – 6pm) sessions are available.

No Limits Multi-Sport camps develop the player and the person. At No Limits Summer Camps, we train more than just athletes. We want to create good people, strong in their faith, who give back to their community and are able to be successful on and off the field. No Limits also offers Volleyball, Basketball, and Football Camps.
