Temperatures are slowly on the rise, making it the ideal time to start thinking about summer. Make this summer a valuable and memorable one with a camp experience that fosters your child’s growth and development, contributes to their independence and confidence, and helps them connect with other youth their age.
Here to take some of the headache out of researching and planning for parents is Blueprint4SummerSTL, a free, mobile-friendly website that features more than 1,750 (and growing) camps and events that are happening this summer right here in the St. Louis area (some of which are probably within a 5-10 mile radius of you!).
Blueprint4Summer makes finding the perfect opportunity for your kiddo a breeze with the capability to narrow your search by specific keywords, activities, date, time, location, age and price range. No matter if you’re looking for a movie-making class in downtown St. Louis for a 10-year-old or an outdoor skills-building camp in Chesterfield for a child with special needs – your key to summer fun is just a click away.
If you have multiple kids, Blueprint4Summer takes the convenience of planning one step further. By creating a free account, parents can bookmark their favorite programs, save their search results and stay informed when new programs are added. You can also add your sessions to a printable, shareable calendar that can be color-coded for each child, making it easy to see if there are any overlaps or gaps in the schedule.
Blueprint4Summer is community-funded by a group of local investors who want to help St. Louis-area kids succeed. They’ve also partnered with local schools to spread the word on this readily available resource to students and their families. United Way’s 2-1-1 resource helpline has also partnered with the cause by connecting and referring interested individuals.
