It’s still only April, but summer camps are already filling up for the 2021 summer season. It could be pent up demand, but whatever it is, now is the time to be signing up for camps that mostly get started in June.

A few camps are already completely sold out. Others have sold out some of their sessions, which probably means that the rest are likely to go pretty soon. Fortunately, there are quite a few camps from which to choose. You have a good chance to get something of you move along. Choices range from outdoor adventures with Great Basin Naturalists to art-centered camps at the Nevada Museum of Art. A few summer camps offer sessions on a daily basis, so if you miss the initial registration, you still have chances to get your kids into some great summer camp experiences.
