EVENT UPDATE 3/12/20: Keeping in mind the health of our event partners as well as our potential attendees against the spread and contraction of the Coronavirus, we have decided to cancel this year’s Kids Camp Fair, scheduled for this Sunday at the National Infantry Museum. It is unfortunate because so much effort has already been put into hosting the event by our staff, performers, sponsors, and vendors, but we feel it is the right thing to do in the current climate for the health of our community and the hundreds involved with hosting this annual event. We hope you understand and will continue to support this event in the future.
Don’t worry, we’ve still got your covered for finding information on summer camps, activities and attractions to keep your kid enriched and entertained this summer and into fall. Visit our website at https://familyandkidsga.com/summer-camps-columbus-ga/ for hyperlinks to vendors who were scheduled at this year’s camp fair, a link to a directory of kids activities and programs and a link to sign up for our newsletter to receive information on an upcoming digital camp fair!
Summer will be here before you know it! Once school lets out, our kids have so much more free time. It can be hard to find that summer balance of keeping your kids occupied and fulfilling our work and life obligations. Thankfully, our Kids Camp & Summer Fun Fair brings together the top day camps, overnight camps, clubs, attractions, cultural activities and more to help you decide the best activities to entertain and enrich your children this summer and into fall.
The Fair is open from 12-4pm on March 15 at National Infantry Museum. With over 50 vendors on-site, there’s something for every child, ages 2-14. The museum’s galleries and battle simulator will be open, and concessions will be available for purchase in the lobby. Most vendors will be offering games, activities, special guests or giveaways to help keep your child engaged while you shop for summer plans. Special guests will be there to greet event attendees, such as book superstar “Skippy Jon Jones,” PBS Star “Princess Presto” and even “Spiderverse Spiderman.” In honor of the event’s tenth anniversary, the non-profit SparkArt will provide a free firework kids craft. Event-goers can play “Passport to Summer Fun,” where they can compete to win several grand prizes such as trips, attraction passes and summer camp enrollments.
New to this year’s expo is on-stage entertainment! The lineup features demonstrations, musicals, comedy, magic and juggling. See the full schedule in our adjacent event ad, along with more info.
