Ultimate Summer Camp Guide 2022
Welcome to the Ultimate Summer Camp Guide for 2022! KidzToPros is a leader in providing enriching summer camps that stimulate children’s minds and extend their learning in an atmosphere of fun. It’s not too early to sign up for summer camp!
If you’re a new parent searching for a meaningful way to help your kids enjoy their summer break, KidzToPros’ summer camps are where it’s at! We provide camps in areas of interest for every child, so you can carry on providing for your family and let us keep your kids engaged when it’s hot out and they’re feeling bored and lethargic.
After all, summer means school’s out and there’s time for all those interests your kids can’t persue during the school year. School curriculums can’t cover it all. Oftentimes that means cutting back on STEM, arts and sports programs. What a shame! Sending your child to a KidzToPros summer camp keeps them on schedule, moving and mingling with their peers, rather than glued to their screens all day.
What are Summer Camps?
KidzToPros’ summer camps are one- and two-week adventures where kids immerse themselves in STEM, sports and arts. Kids have fun in endless ways at camp while learning, creating and blowing off steam.
Here’s some of what we offer, where to find us, and how to prepare.
Camps We Offer

These innovative programs teach your child how to design and develop games and create interactive stories. Kids also build programmable circuits, robots and more! Where else could they do that?
KidzToPros provides a wide variety of STEM programs so your children get started preparing for a high-tech future. Our goal: providing campers with a fun path for every student by accelerating the development of quality STEM skills, such as beginning robotics, coding and circuitry, or advanced courses in game design, machine learning and electronics.
KidzToPros packs their visual and digital arts programs with multiple avenues for exploring and developing kids’ creative potential.
Summer camp presents a great way to help kids express themselves creatively. After all, ideas they’ve only imagined previously come to life at camp! Our arts programs encourage imaginative thinking and inspire your child to look at the world from new and different perspectives.
Multiple studies show that physical activities improve a child’s mental health and academic skills. Sports also help kids develop self-confidence and improve coordination, helping children stay active, fit and strong.
KidzToPros’ sports programs ignite a love of sports and teamwork. Our coaches stay positive when teaching the fundamentals of tennis, basketball or soccer. Kids also learn proper techniques, skills, strategies and rules of the game.
But most importantly, we emphasize the importance of mindful play. This includes areas of leadership, teamwork, respect for others, not giving up, and being kind to one another.
How to Prepare for KidzToPros’ Summer Camp
Are your kids ready to rock summer camp? Get them excited, and use these 7 tips to properly prepare for the fun ahead!
1. Visit the pediatrician before camp.
If your child hasn’t had a recent annual exam, including being up to date with all vaccinations, schedule an appointment before summertime gets here. We want your child healthy and ready to participate in all scheduled activities.
2. Review clear and fair expectations.
As we get closer to the end of school and the summer months lie ahead, talk with your child about what to expect at KidzToPros’ summer camps. Remind them about the importance of drinking plenty of water, following safety procedures and cooperating with their peers.
3. Keep an inventory list.
KidzToPros will provide a list of what parents should pack for camp each day. Go over it ahead of time to make sure you have all the necessary items. Label each item with your child’s full name. Remember to include any allergy meds, water, sunscreen and bug spray. But leave valuables at home.
4. Review KidzToPros’ updated medical policies.
If your child has allergies or must take special medications, communicate with KidzToPros ahead of time. Make sure the camp instructors know about any special health needs. This includes medications, how they should be administered and any appropriate health conditions.
5. Check in with your kid periodically.
Talk to your child to assess their mood. Are they excited or nervous? Encourage them to talk about it. Tell them it’s normal to feel apprehensive about a change to their routine or schedule. Help them focus on what they’re looking forward to most about camp.
6. Pack a small reminder of home.
When you’re packing the required items for your children to take each day, include an item that reminds them of home. A little note or favorite snack will help them feel a sense of comfort as they are trying new things.
7. Prep for a drama-free drop-off.
Don’t hold everyone up when dropping your child off at KidzToPros’ summer camp, especially on the first day. Stay positive and happy, say a quick goodbye and try to enjoy some personal time on your own. Your child is up for this!
How Long Is Summer Camp?
One- and Two-Week Camps
What’s one of the best things about summer camps? They guide kids to enjoy taking calculated risks and encourage them to try something new; experiences they don’t have the opportunity to touch during the school year; adventures they might not otherwise choose.
KidzToPros’ one- and two-week summer camps encourage creative thinking and using imagination to grow. Campers choose their favorite sports like basketball or tennis. Then the options are almost limitless, as they try offerings like STEM camps and explore game design, virtual reality, or 3D modeling. Who knows; they may even find a new area of interest they didn’t know they enjoyed!
Each day at camp reigns differently, depending on the type of KidzToPros summer camp you’ve chosen for your child. However, the overall activity times are fairly consistent each day. In order to help parents plan, this schedule gives you an idea what your child might expect from a daily camp schedule.

Parent & Camper FAQs
How does drop-off and pick-up work?
KidzToPros makes dropping off and picking up your kid for summer camp easy-breezy!
Summer Camp Drop-Off Guide
1. Make contact with your camp director.
2. Stand behind the tape placed on the ground behind the check-in desk. This helps keep the 6-ft. COVID distancing plan in place.
3. Remain in your car if you’re dropping off the kids curbside.
4. Teachers greet campers, take temperatures and offer hand sanitizer.
5. The camp director checks in those with normal temps.
6. Campers placed in groups spaced six feet apart.
7. Morning check-in activities vary but take place from 9 AM to 9:15 AM to keep kids engaged while they wait.

Summer Camp Pick-Up Guide
1. Campers line up in the same area as the morning drop-off.
2. Campers stay with their specific camp instructors spaced six feet apart. As kids from the front get collected, this frees up space to bring out more kids.
3. Instructors dismiss campers one by one to their designated adults, while checking them out on the app.
When Parents Run Late
It happens. Sometimes parents get held up due to work, heavy traffic or family emergencies. Please let KidzToPros’ instructors know ahead of time, if possible, when you’re running late, or at least call us with an update if the unexpected happens.
We do not leave children alone under any circumstances. Our instructors and coaches wait until authorized caretakers pick up the child. However, there is a $5 per minute charge for late pick-ups (non-negotiable), starting five minutes after the session’s end time.
What Should Campers Bring with Them?
In order to protect campers from food-borne illnesses, we ask that each camper bring the following items to camp each day:
- Bottled Water
- Morning and afternoon snacks
Please apply sunscreen to your child each morning prior to their arrival at camp. We recommend that you also send a bottle of extra sunscreen with your child so they can re-apply throughout the day as needed.
