Summer camp ideas for kids of all ages.

Parents, if you're already planning summer activities for your kids, we worked with the Houston Moms Blog to put together a handy camp guide.

Here are five options for sleep-away camps.

Camp Balcones Springs

Where: Marble Falls

This is a co-ed overnight camp for kids ages seven to 17. The costs range between $1,000 - $3,000 depending on a week or two-week stay.

Camp Kidventure

Where: Austin

They have a variety of overnight camps for kids eight to 18. The cost starts at $1400.

Marine Military Camp

Where: Harlingen

This camp is for boys only who are 11 to 18 years old.

It's a four-week, overnight stay.

The camp says boys will learn to work hard and play hard.

YMCA Camp Cullen

Where: Trinity

Campers learn how to ride horses, explore nature and build character.

A week stay is $850 for members and $950 for non-members. You can also find discounts on their website.

Union for Reform Judaism Greene Family Camp

Where: Bruceville

This is a month-long camp.

There are different programs based on age as well as camperships, which can provide partial, financial support to help families send their kids to camp.

If you or your child aren't ready for long camp stays, there are cheaper day camps closer to home.
