Summer camps / schools

If you consider staying part of the summer in Parma, here are a few proposals to keep your children busy while you enjoy the swimming pool (or your air-conditioned flat...).

Different structures offer summer camps or classes. Enrollment will open in May for most of these structures.

Club Mary Poppins offer summer school for kids up to 12. Open 11 June-27 July and then from 20 August, provided 20 kids have been enrolled for each period. Weekly cost from Eur 80 to 130 according to kid's age and number of hours per day.  Enrollment already open.

Leitmotiv language school propose intensive courses of English, French and German. Enrollment already open, deadline 31st May.

The city of Parma has published a guide with summer camps available for kids aged 6-14. Enrollment will start in May for summer camps "in città".

Biblioteca Ilaria Alpi propose activities in English and Spanish for kids aged 8+. Only in the morning, though.

Different didactic farms also offer activities. Google "centro estivo".

The WWF also offer summer camps for kids and teenagers. Usually one week long.

After having booked the kids' activities, visit our 'Me time' page for suggestions of outdoor swimming pools!
