This list will continue to be updated!

With lots of parents in the Crossroads still working their tails off through the summer, it's comforting to know that there are organizations in our community that cater to keeping our kids educated, engaged, and most importantly, entertained while we work.

The Crossroads is BLESSED with plenty of activities for children to do of all ages throughout the year, and thankfully there are several who offer fun things for kids after the school year ends.

We will continue to add to more summer camps as we become aware of them, so if you know of a business or organization that will be hosting summer camps in the Crossroads, feel free to add them on our app or Facebook comments and we will continue to update accordingly.

Let's get started with the summer camps we know of at this time.
