Before you were old enough for guys’ night, there was all-boys summer camp, where you and your pals played games, blazed trails, and traded joke after joke from your bunk beds. Now, you can give your son the same opportunity to pursue new interests, build confidence and social skills, and make lifelong friends at an overnight camp for boys. Your little man can spend his summer learning, growing, and gathering stories to tell at guys’ nights years into the future.
No matter what it is that interests and excites your boys, there’s a summer camp for them somewhere in our directory. In addition to classic camp activities like canoeing, hiking, and roasting marshmallows, there are rewarding and educational programs that focus on all kinds of activities and subject areas: sports, science, computers and tech, performing arts, and many more. Your kids will have the chance to increase their skills and knowledge alongside boys their age who share the same passions.
Although day camps, in which campers return home every evening, are a better fit for some families, we believe sleepaway camps give boys the best opportunity to gain independence and discover new things about themselves outside of their comfort zone. If your child has special needs, they won’t be left out—there are plenty of camps fully equipped and prepared to take care of your son’s physical and mental well-being while he enjoys some time away from home.
Check out our extensive list of residential youth camps to introduce your boys and teenagers to this summer. The map will help you narrow your options down to camps in your state or territory, but if your family is feeling more adventurous, you’re welcome to explore camp opportunities in other parts of the world as well. Wherever your sons decide to go, they’ll carry the lessons and memories with them long after they have boys of their own.
