Well is it just me or did this past school year FLY right on by!? After realizing that there were only 5 weeks left of the school year, my husband I have begun the search (perhaps a little late I know) for some summer camp options for the girls to keep active with others their age. I quickly realized that there were soooo many options in Orange County that I thought it would be good to narrow it down a bit and make a list just for Mission Viejo for those people that want to stay close to home. So here you are, a comprehensive 2019 list of the area summer camps around Mission Viejo. There is bound to be something in this list to appeal to everyone, no matter what age or interest. Also- if we have left off a Mission Viejo summer camp that you know about, please be sure to let us know so we can add it! Summer livin' and summer lovin'.... here we come!
