About Us

Each year, millions of children attend summer camps where they make lifelong memories and friends, learn new life skills, and experience personal growth. Camps Insider is an overnight summer camp directory that helps parents choose the best overnight camps close to their vicinity.

My name is Kami, and I’m the person behind Camps Insider. Overnight summer programs can greatly vary in the activities they offer, session length, location, and much more, so it’s not always simple to find the right one.


I grew up attending local YMCA summer camps and also was a Girl Scout in Illinois. Summer camps and my amazing time in the scouts provided me with so many amazing memories and friends and taught me valuable outdoor skills, which motivated me to start this site to help other families make the right choice for a summer camp. I’ve also spent some time working as a marketer for summer camps helping them increase their enrollments. Through our useful guides that cover camps by state, city, and subject, we help you narrow down your list of the perfect summer camps for your kids.

When I’m not writing summer camp guides, you can find me hiking scenic trails, camping out in the wilderness, or going for a swim at the beach. I love to travel and have been to several places around the United States. If you have any questions about camps or would like to get your camp added to one of our lists, feel free to message us
