With first-hand knowledge of over 500 camps and programs in the ever-growing portfolio, Summer 365 takes great pride in their relationships and are confident in providing unbiased recommendations. This first-hand knowledge plus a friendly “get to know you” philosophy are what creates the best, most qualified matches.

Selecting the right camp is an important decision. They are here for you every step of the way including:
-A curated list of camp of recommendations
-Help planing home visits, tours, and rookie days
-Ongoing resource for tips, advice, and insight

Every child deserves the gift of summer. GIVE SUM is a special scholarship fund for families who would otherwise not be able to afford to send their children to camp. For every child that they help place in a camp or program, Summer 365 will make a donation to this fund.
