Summer camps for kids in Seattle

Whether your kid is the next Picasso or a budding Neil deGrasse Tyson, there are plenty of ways to get them engaged at Seattle’s summer camps.

Plastic dividers contain a variety of colored pens and finetip markers including greens, blues, oranges, pinks, and grays.

Hands-on activities, guided courses, and opportunities to explore interests are a great way to spend the summer months.
