Posted by Brittany White on May 15, 2015 11:00:00 AM

So, you have a son.  A young boy full of energy and destructive boy powers, and in about a month he is going to be home. All summer long! Looking for a fun boys summer camp? Summer camps are great for kindergarteners to discover their passion and be challenged! Finding the perfect boys summer camp can be hard. Traditionally, boys participate in sports camps like soccer, or maybe even arts camps that include crafts and fun games. But why not incorporate dance camps like hip hop? Although not the obvious choice, dance is excellent for developing core strength, agility, coordination and musical awareness in boys.  Since summer camps for boys are not the only option, we have compiled a helpful list of some fun summer boy-friendly activities to help with the all important "what in the world are we doing to do all summer" planning process!

Keep your boys busy by having fun in the sun! Make fun art on the sidewalk with chalk, bike around your neighborhood, or visit your local park and play some sports!  You can even try filling a small baby pool with water and toys.  Boys can go crazy splashing around and throwing water.  It does no real damage and they water your lawn at the same time! 

2. Get Up Close With Nature!

Are your little ones animal lovers? Why not have fun and build a homemade bird feeder? Boys (and girls) love the satisfaction they get building something with their hands.  Or have a read-a-thon outside! Go on a nature scavenger hunt! Collect bugs and put them in jars with air holes for "scientifc observation". Hike around trails as a family or visit your local zoo! 

3. Build A Fun Experiment

You’ve probably heard or done the Mentos in a coke bottle experiment, right? Why not get creative and try a new experiment like making quick sand or learn how to make a tornado in a bottle! Click here for some more fun, at-home experiments!
