Every child deserves the chance to experience the excitement of summer camp. Fortunately, there are options in our region for every interest, budget and age. This guide contains as many camps as the Inlander could gather — more than 500 opportunities for the region's kids.

For parents who worry that the cost of sending their children to their dream camp is prohibitive, don't stress. As I curated the following listings, I discovered the opportunities to attend summer camp are more accessible than many may have thought.

Many programs offer scholarships (but don't wait to apply), like the Coeur d'Alene Arts Commission's Summer Arts for Youth program, and Selkirk Outdoor Leadership and Education's (SOLE) numerous nature-themed camp sessions. The Salvation Army's Camp Gifford is specially focused on serving local, low-income children.

There are even free camps. The Spokane County Library District offers a huge list of free day camps all summer at its many branches, and Gonzaga University again hosts a free Chinese language camp for the most ambitious learners. Children with special needs are not excluded from summer camps' special rite of passage. In addition, numerous camps under $200 are in reach of even more families.

Finances can be the biggest limitation for families with children when summer arrives. What this guide proves is that they don't have to be, and the possibilities are endless when it comes to making summer camp memories that last.
