Welcome to the Sounds Fun Mom South Sound Summer Camp Guide!
This list, by no means, includes every camp in the South Sound. I’ve included those I know something about and those who have provided information to me. I have also tried to include a variety of interests and regions, but if you know a great one I missed, or need a hand finding something else, give me a holler! Don’t forget to check your Parks Department for many, many more options. I have additional resources at the bottom, too.
