More Than Just Summer 

Summer camps in July and August, Christmas camps in December, Songkran camps in April, and even more throughout the year like Halloween camps in October. There are so many opportunities to give your kids a crash course in some new skills and hobbies. 

Choosing the Right Camp for Your Child

As well as considering your child’s interests, age, location, and cost and duration of the camps, there are a few things parents should consider before booking one of them. 

It is so important to research camps thoroughly. Your child’s safety and wellbeing is the most important thing. You can do this by visiting facilities, communicating with camp organizers, and doing some solid internet investigating. 

Camp for Child
Summer camp for your kids in Thailand can be such a great confidence booster.

A great idea is to utilize Bangkok’s excellent parent communities on Facebook. 

Most parents will already be in some groups for the school or community. But a quick search will give you BKK Parents & Kids, Babies, Toddler and Children’s Play Bangkok, and many more. Your child’s school will likely have a Facebook community group which you can join.

These groups are a great place to ask questions and get advice. Ask other parents if they have experience with the camps you are considering. 

Also read other online reviews such as on Google Maps. If you see red flags, low ratings, concerning reviews, give the camp a miss. No point in risking your little one’s safety. 

Day Camps vs. Sleepover Camps

Day camps offer a convenient option for children to engage in activities during the day while returning home in the evenings, providing a balance between structured programming and family time. 

These might be better for kids who are not comfortable staying overnight away from parents or for younger kids. 

On the other hand, sleepover camps offer a more immersive experience, allowing campers to build independence, form deeper connections with peers, and fully immerse themselves in the camp community. 

These might be better for more independent kids or for families who want to start to make their children feel more comfortable staying away from home. 

Many camps offer both options with an additional fee for the sleepover option.
