Camp Sloop: Finding the right summer camp just got easier

Camp Sloop Austin's Ultimate Camp Guide

Meet Camp Sloop, the ultimate Austin-area camp guide.  A site that makes finding the right camp easier! includes listings for more than 2,000 camps. But more important, it takes the stress out of summer planning by providing advanced search tools, camp comparisons, saved searches, interaction with Facebook friends who like the camps you do, and more.

As mothers who confronted the stress of trying to find compatible--and fun--camps every year for our kids of different ages and interests, we decided to do something about the confusion from all kinds of incomplete camp lists, fliers, and spotty Web sites. The result is spectacular. You can search by date, times, ages, distance from your house, transportation options, and a dozen more criteria. But most important, you can save your searches and favorite camps, and they'll be there when you log in again.

Visit Camp Sloop today!

Psst. Two other things. Be sure and "Like" us on Facebook to stay in the loop for announcements on camp specials and discounts. And, of course, you have to read up on the story of the real dog Sloop!
