Your Cedar Rapids and Iowa City Summer Camps and Activities Guide is here!
Macaroni Kid Cedar Rapids and Iowa City are publications reaching thousands of families in Eastern Iowa - with that number growing every day. We are proud to offer parents a free, one-stop-shop filled with all the events and activities that the Corridor has to offer. After having numerous parents ask us about seasonal camp options, we decided to create a yearly resource for parents where they can see the best of what is available and feel confident about where they spend their money and send their children.
Be sure to check back often as camps will be continually added through the summer. We hope that you find our guide to be a valuable resource as you plan your children's adventures this summer in Cedar Rapids and Iowa City areas. As always, please call ahead before visiting any event or venue as things can change without our knowledge.
