Park City and the Salt Lake Valley offer several summer camps for kids. While spending your summer vacation in Park City, keep the kids having fun at any of the following camps:
Deer Valley's Summer Adventure Camp provides nurturing care and summer fun for children two months to 12 years of age. The camp offers creative and challenging activities to ensure campers have fun while learning. Deer Valley's Summer Adventure Camp is based out of Snow Park Lodge, which is surrounded by Park City's incredible mountains with hiking trails, hillside playgrounds and duck ponds.
The Utah Museum of Natural History offers summer camp programs for children in kindergarten through ninth grade. Each week features a new program such as "Science Chef," "Utah Time Travelers" and "Budding Botanists."
