Summer is coming!!

Summer is just around the corner and Lake Country Family Fun knows how to have fun in the summer! It’s the best time to experience Lake Country and Waukesha County. We might be biased, but it really is!! 

Good News Parents: So are Summer Camps!

Our best summer is a mix of summer camps or summer school with a couple weeks of laidback, lazy create-your-own-adventure-type summer days.

Since mid-January it’s been asked, ‘what can my kids do for summer camp?’ and ‘where is the best summer camp?’ Well, Lake Country Family Fun has put their ear to the ground and brought you the annual super resourceful and handy Summer Camp Guide! Below you will find the annual Summer Camp Guide with a variety of summer camps and the information on enrolling in summer school, where you’ll find something for everyone.   Sports camps, day camps, overnight camps, STEM camps, and more!  We’ve got you covered!
