Northern Kentucky Summer Camp Registrations For All Ages

Next Level Academy Summer Camp
This week was the last week of preschool for most local schools.  Only eight more school days before Fort Thomas Independent Schools let out for the summer.  And unless you’re planning to summer in the Hamptons, school out in eight days means eleven days before they’re bored!  But fear not; if you haven’t yet planned out your summer, check the list below for a good balance of fun, athletic, or theatrical summer camps for kids of many ages some of which are even FREE if you mention this ad (information is summarized from respective websites of the organizations):


YMCA Camps

The Campbell County YMCA offers a number of different summer camps including Camp Hoopla and Camp Independence! These day camps include weekly field trips, games, activities, swimming, arts and crafts, and a focus on keeping campers engaged in school subjects with centers and reading time.  Additionally, the YMCA is American Camping Association certified.  Registration forms will be accepted at the Fort Thomas YMCA branch only. Options are part time/full time and 6:30a – 6:00p Monday through Friday.

Jessica Berberich, Family Life Director, says “Summer Camp is almost here (…) we have a fun filled summer planned with swimming, crafts, and field trips. We have some fun critters and a magician that will be visiting us!”  Please contact Jessica Berberich or Nikki Boop at 859-781-1814 and mention this ad when registering (before May 20th) to receive FREE registration!


Next Level Academy

The Next Level Academy in Wilder KY is a great sports and fitness academy.  This summer, they are offering several options to keep your kids active.  They will be having Summer Hoops (basketball) League beginning in July for 3rd-7th graders.  Additionally, they are offering an active day camp for ages 6-14 called G.Y.M.M. (Growing Young Minds & Muscles).  This day camp runs from May 31 to August 5th with options to sign up for partial weeks, full weeks, multiple weeks, or even the whole summer.  Next Level will strive to improve the fitness and sports fundamentals of your children on and off the court.  Children will learn new sports and games and improve on their existing knowledge.  Additionally, they will have guest speakers throughout the summer.

Hannah Lugabihl, program director at Next Level, says “We are excited to have G.Y.M.M. at Next Level Academy for the second summer in a row! Last year’s turn out exceeded our expectations and we are happy to announce that this summer already has a good number of returning campers ready for another summer of fun and sports!”  She went on to describe their new partnership with Blue Marble Bookstore to bring additional educational value and reading work.  Finally, Lugabihl said, “We have fun activities planned for all 48 days of camp. Whether it is obstacle course races, basketball fundamentals, puzzle challenges, zombie dodgeball, four square games, or flashlight tag, we have something for everyone every day of the week!”
