2015 Summer Activities for Kids in Waterloo and Cedar Falls, Iowa

Just for kicks, I am compiling a list of day camps and similar activities for kids in the Waterloo and Cedar Falls area. Please let me know about anything I've missed! These are in a random order.

Day camps for ages 9 - 15
2015 themes include CSI, Math/Art/History, Multimedia, Creative Writing, Painting, Dance, Fire/EMS, and golf. The only drawback is that most camps are half-days, so working parents need to figure out transportation

Classes and Camps for All Ages
I love the Art Explorer Day Camps for kids ages 9 - 13. They take the kids to art museums in nearby cities. They always do an art project in the bus and sometimes at their location. One of the best things about it is that the kids are gone from 8am - 5pm, so there is no transportation required in the middle of the day.

Hearst Center for the Arts
Classes and Camps for All Ages
Of course it's all art-related, but themes include drawing, painting, writing, pottery, and even Legos!

Camps for elementary, middle school and high school students
UNI offers a variety of camps with themes such as robotics, nature, science and technology.

Day camps for ages 5 - 16
Click on events, and you can filter by Youth Camps. There is a really cool Hunger Games Mini Camp for ages 10 - 16!

Classes and camps for ages 5 - 18
Camps focus on acting and musical skills. This is a really well-run organization.

Theater classes and practice for ages 4 - 18
Students work on a production and give a performance. This one requires a lot of time, and does not allow much flexibility.

Grout Museum
Summer camps for ages 6 - 10 (approximately)
Camp themes include astronomy, Victorian era, rockets, sports science, superhero science

Cedar Falls Little Red Schoolhouse
Spend a week attending a one room school house. Learn about pioneers who settled in the Midwest.

Day Camps for Preschool - Jr. High

Cedar Falls Sports Camps
Ages Vary

Camp Hope / Aspire
Ages 4+
Horseback riding, etc. They don't have dates published yet, but it is usually in early August.

Waterloo Public Library for Teens
I'm going to look into this one. Activities include crafts, laser tag at the library, battle of the bands, and Minecraft training

Waterloo Public Library Summer Program
Activities for youth - grade 5.
