Giggles Summer Camp – Ballantyne NC

Our summer camp in Charlotte, North Carolina is GIGGLES ON THE GO!! We offer a full 8-hour summer camp for kids 5 years old through 5th grade.

**Please note your child must be 5 years old by June 15, 2020**

Our camp is different from most of the summer camps in Charlotte for several reasons.

  • We go on a field trip every day with LOTS of fun activities!
  • We have weekly guests come to Giggles from our community like the Discovery Place Nature, Animal Rescue Sanctuary as well as Down Dog Vet.
  • We have a very low teacher to child ratio 1:13 maximum (it’s usually much lower). Your child will get the personal attention they deserve.
  • ALL of our snacks, lunches, and activities are included in our low prices.  That means you don’t ever have to worry about paying anything extra, packing food or a water bottle, or even washing your child’s camp shirt; we take care of it all!

We also offer lots of fun special activities in the center for all kids every Tuesday and Thursday for Summertime fun!!

Special Activities Schedule

How it works

Kids attending summer camp in Charlotte, North Carolina are dropped off at our center any time between 8:00 and 9:30 AM.  We load up each morning at 9:30 for our daily field trips. We are generally gone from the center from around 9:30 AM until 2:00 or 3:00 PM each day.  We return for some free play in the afternoon.  Your child should be picked up 8 hours after they were dropped off in the morning. We do offer flexibility if you need extra time, just ask for details.

Lunches and activities are all included in our low prices. Each week of summer camp has a different theme which is listed below.

**Monday, Wednesday, and Friday are water days.  Your children should arrive wearing their swimwear and sunscreen and bring a change of clothing and a towel packed in a bag.
