School’s going to be out soon, and it’s time to find things for the kids to do all summer! Far from the one-size-fits-all camps of yesteryear, there are camps for all kinds of interests for kids these days, from cooking to sports to art and much more.

    For Greenville County, Kidding Around Greenville has put together a really nice, comprehensive guide to summer camps, broken out by category, area, month, and other groupings, with great descriptions and links.

    In Spartanburg, the day camps at Chapman Cultural Center have something for every interest: science, history, art, ballet, writing, and outdoor adventure. The Greenwood Arts Center has several arts-themed camps as well.
