In less than three months, the kids will be out of school for the summer, which means it's time to start looking for summer camps.

Whether you need a camp for just a couple days or a couple of weeks, there are tons of options in all subjects like science, art and sports. 

And we're here to help you sort through them.

We've created a tool that'll give you exactly what you're looking for so you don't have to scroll through an endless list for hours.

To start, click here.


This is what the tool looks like when you first start chatting with it. You can swipe the little cactus picture to the left to see the next option. 

It'll take you to FB messenger, where you'll enter your search specifications. The first question asks what is most important when trying to find a summer camp: type of camp, date, location, time of day, lunch. Tip: To see those options swipe the cactus camper image on your phone. If you're on the computer, click on the little arrow on the edge of the graphic. (Click on the picture to the right of this paragraph to see what that looks like)

After you click on one of those options it'll ask you more questions. Just answer them, and it'll give you camps that match your criteria. You'll have the option to view all of the camp details right there.
