Mostly A’s
You should head to traditional camp!
You’re a social butterfly and will have a blast at a camp where you get to do a bit of everything with your new friends -crafts, sports and even dancing! Every day will be completely different, so you’ll never be bored.

Mostly B’s
You should go to an art or academic camp!
Just because it may have the word “academic” doesn’t mean these camps are anything like school – they are way more fun! You’ll send your days at camp playing games and doing activities that focus on music, art and discovering new ideas. You’ll have so much to tell your mom and dad about!

Mostly C’s
You should go to a sports camp!
Since you love being active and playing outside, you’ll have most fun at a sports camp. If there’s one sport you really love, there’s a camp out there that will help you perfect your skills. And if you just love being active in general, there’s tons of camps out there that offer a little bit of everything. Ask your parents to help you find one!
