Summer Camp in Wilmington NC
Summer Camp 2021 will start on Tuesday, June 1, 2021
The New Hanover County School Board will vote on the 2021-2022 school calendar on March 2. We will verify the number of weeks of summer break at that time. If the proposed start date is accepted, weeks 11 and 12 of camp will be included.
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.
What Makes Us Different
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.

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 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!

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.
