It used to be that summer camps were participating in organized activities, a few field trips and a lot of outdoor play. Now, summer camps come in all different forms and appeal to children's varied interests. Here's just a sampling of Miami's unique summer offerings to keep children learning and moving:
YouthSpark Microsoft Camps are being hosted for free at the Dadeland and Aventura Microsoft Store locations. Separated into Junior Designers (ages 8-10) and Designers (11-13), YouthSpark courses will include age appropriate lessons on game coding, game designing, movie making and photography. Four day camps will be hosted for 10 weeks beginning on June 2nd and running through August 29th. For more information and to register, visit this site.
Boss Chick Minis is a summer series teaching hip hop and choreography to girls ages 7 to 13 at the Miami Dance Studio in Wynwood. Classes will be taught by founder of the popular, high-intensity The Boss Chick Dance Workout, Simone Sobers. Sobers was classically trained, received instruction from Alvin Ailey Dance Theater and has had a teaching career that has taken her across the globe.

Lego Robotics is being offered at Sports Kids in Sunny Isles and the Miami Shores Recreation Center. Using a mix of physics, chemistry and robotics and adding in Legos, children will learn to create their own lego robots. Classes at Sports Kids are held in the afternoons weekly. Miami Shores classes are being held the weeks of June 30th and July 14th. More information on the Sports Kids' Lego Robotics classes can be found here and for the Miami Shores camp here.
