Summer Camp and Fun in Huntsville Alabama 2023

As we all get excited about the end of school, there's also that question- what am I going to do all summer with my kids? It's a lot to think through! I listened to The Lazy Genius Podcast- 10 Questions for the Start of Summer a few days ago which got me thinking. I need a plan! We all need a plan as we head into summer so here are some ideas.

For our family, we love our neighborhood pool- Piedmont Pool. Huntsville has a ton of great neighborhood pools and swim teams to keep your kids exercising and staying busy. We have friends at Jones Valley Pool, Blossomwood Pool, Greenwyche Pool, Valley Hill Country Club, Hampton Cove Pool, or The Ledges. There are many more, but those are just a few to look into.

For younger kids, there's VBS:

For older kids, here are a few camps we know are great from personal experience. We know there are many more, but these are ones our kids have attended and enjoyed:

  • FCA Sports Camp - both our kids have done these and loved it! Great way to try a new sport or improve skills at sports you already play.
  • VSI - basketball and football training, academic coaching, and nutrition coaching. Our son has loved VSI, and it has been a lifesaver for us in the summers!
  • UAH Basketball Camps - UAH offers other sports camps and academic camps, but we have only tried b-ball.
  • Alabama Athletic Club - tennis camps. Our daughter has done these several times and loved them!

Volunteering is a great way to teach your kids about compassion and serving others. Here are a few opportunities we have tried that are also kid-friendly:

Miscellaneous Fun!

As you begin to plan, remember to support all our local Huntsville businesses, restaurants (we can't wait to try Hound and Harvest), and summer attractions. Have a great summer and let us know what you enjoy doing in the summer. We all need more ideas!
