Camp Guide

Finding fun and entertaining activities for your child this summer can be a challenge! We’ve compiled a list of area camps and care to give you ideas on things to sign them up to do!

Check out the 8th Annual Summer Activities Fair sponsored by Community Education and Bowling Green High School Youth Services Center. The fair is free and is usually the first week of May. The fair provides area parents a one-stop shop for information on summer activities offered in our community.
