Busch Gardens Summer Camps – Why My Family Loves Them

My neighbor came over early this week to ask me what summer camps I was sending the kids to this summer. We usually try to pick a few of the same ones so that we can carpool. However, when she asked me, I must have looked like a deer in headlights! Summer camps? Already? It’s MARCH! But school will be out before we know it and summer camps do fill up fast. Last year I waited a bit too long to sign my kids up for their favorite summer camp, Busch Gardens, and they had limited selection on what ones to pick from. In my defense, all of the Busch Gardens Summer Camps are amazing, and they still had a great time, but they wanted to be able to pick from the whole list.

I promised to be better this year, so thank goodness for my neighbor pointing out that it was already time to start planning for summer!

My kiddos go to a few summer camps each summer, but there is only one that they both insist on. Busch Gardens. Not only do the kids insist on it, it is the only camp that they go to that when I pick them up, they are smiling from ear to ear and talk over each other the whole way home to tell me about their days. Neither one puts in their earbuds and listens to tunes, or picks up their phones to play games. They are SO excited about what they learned and what rides they got to go on, it’s just well….awesome. It’s a proud mom moment! This summer will be their third year going, and they can’t wait to see what sessions are available. Especially since there a few new ones this year!

Why My Kids Love Busch Gardens Summer Camps

  • They get once-in-a-lifetime experiences through animal interactions.
  • With their camp counselors, they get behind-the-scenes experiences. More than they would ever get by having a fun-filled day at the park with mom and dad.
  • They get to ride the rides! And most of the time, they don’t have to wait in the “regular lines”.
  • It’s not like any other camp they have been too, it’s truly unique.
