We’ve made a Summer Camps Round-Up just for teens. Like many parents, you are looking for ways to engage your teens offline this summer. This list will help guide you through some fun and exciting camps that are great for the older kids in your life. From art skills and filmmaking to staying outside on Spanish Banks’ beaches, these camps have something for everyone.
As a mom to teens and a former educator, I suggest finding camps to introduce your teen to like-minded peers. Do they love TikTok? Put the in Shoreline Studio or Emily Carr Teen Summer programs. Do they love the beach? Try Windsure skim boarding or surfboarding. They might grumble at first, but they’ll thank you for it later.
