Great summers for kids start at the Metro Parent Camp Expo. This unique, free event gives families an opportunity to discover fantastic summer experiences from all around southeast Michigan – and beyond – for preschoolers through teens.

The 2020 Camp Expo was at Bloomfield Hills High School from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Feb. 23. Parents and kids had a chance to chat with representatives from a variety of different camps including day, overnight and specialty camps for spring, summer – and even holidays.

Plus kids got their faces painted with nature-themed designs (bugs and flowers) and tried their hand at a Baby Yoda coloring/drawing craft. The first 200 registered families to arrive also got a swag bag with treats, toys and a Camp Memory Box Craft Kit.
