Hot Summer Kids Camps in Plymouth

Five cool camps for kids.
There's scarcely a dull moment at a summer camp populated by inflatables courtesy of Pump It Up.

Primrose Summer Camp Sporting weekly themes such as Animal Safari and Medieval Times, this camp keeps kids busy from drop-off to pick-up. Kids experience “variety, a mix of field trips [and] summer camp things, but still have the opportunity to keep up with learning activities,” says Kim Taylor with Primrose School of West Plymouth.   Pump It Up There is scarcely a dull moment at this inflatable-populated summer camp destination. Owner Jeni Mand says Pump It Up is a constant source of jumping fun due to the convenient indoor space. Next time the sun gets shy, take the tykes to expend some energy.
