Camp Fair 2013: Super Summers for Kids

Want cutting edge and classic camp options? Find it all, for tykes to teens, at Metro Parent's 23rd annual event, at the Michigan Science Center in Detroit March 10.

Pre-registration is now closed! Walk-in registrations are welcome on Sunday, March 10. Walk-in registrants will not be entered to win the weekend at Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala.

If you're ready to give your kids the best summer of their lives – and really tap into their hobbies and interests! – mark your calendar for southeast Michigan's premier camp fair event, presented by Metro Parent. Bring the entire family to the newly reopened Michigan Science Center (formerly the Detroit Science Center) from noon to 3:30 p.m. Sunday, March 10, 2013.

"Childhood passions: Rooted at home, realized at camp" is the theme for the Metro Parent's Super Summers for Kids Summer Enrichment & Camp Fair this time around. You'll find loads of cool, nontraditional options not far from home – from cooking, karate, robotics and sailing to tennis, riding, hockey and dance – and lots more. We cover a variety of ages, from little ones to school-age kids to tweens and teens, in a variety of settings, from sleep-away camps to day trips. And never fear: We've got classic outdoor experiences kids will love, too.

You won't want to leave the kids at home for this one. They'll get to check out the camps for themselves and chat with the awesome, engaging people who run them. And – major bonus – the entire family can explore the Michigan Science Center's general-admission hands-on exhibits, totally free of charge! (Tickets are normally about $10 for kids and $13 for adults.) This event is truly custom-made for your entire crew.

Last but definitely not least, you could win a weekend at the famed Space Camp in Huntsville, Ala. for you and your family! That's right: Register for your shot to win! Note: You must check in at registration on the day of the event to be included in the drawing for this prize.

The Michigan Science Center is located at 5020 John R St. in Detroit. Be sure to get a jump on summer on March 10, 2013 at Metro Parent's Super Summers for Kids Summer Enrichment & Camp Fair.
