Summer Camps for Middle Schoolers

If your child is in middle school, there are fewer camp options. Kids don’t need as much supervision, but they need to spend their days doing something off the screens, right? This roundup of summer camps includes camps for rising 6th through 8th graders. For middle schoolers ready for leadership opportunities, see also our East Bay Guide to CIT Opportunities for Teens & Tweens. For junior high kids wanting to sleep away from home, see Northern California Overnight Camp Guide for more ideas!
