Summer Camp in Wilmington NC

***2020 Summer Camp will start on Monday, June 8, 2020***

This is to correlate with the updated school calendar for the 2020-2021 school year.  Students will now be returning to school on August 17, 2020, and for that reason, we have decided to move the start date of our camp up by one week.

We would like to assure everyone that we are taking all of the necessary precautions for the safety and well-being of our staff and the families that we serve.  Our Summer Camp Program will continue this year in accordance with guidelines given by state and local officials.  We would like to thank everyone for your understanding as the necessary changes are made to achieve this.  If you have any questions about our Summer Camp Program, please feel free to contact us.

Giggles Summer Camp – Wilmington NC

Our summer camp in Wilmington, 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 Wilmington 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 Fort Fisher Aquarium, Halyburton Park, martial arts and many more!
  • 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 Wilmington, 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 Fridays 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.
