Summer is almost here: public schools and some private will close by the end of June early July, while most private creche will stay open until end of July (few creches don’t close at all).
Of course, many parents need to keep working, at least for part of their children’s holidays. I have put together a list of activities and camps available in Lisbon and surrounding: in Portuguese, they are called ATL de Verao, where ATL stays for Ativitade do Tempo Livre.
The cheapest are the ones organized by the local Freguesia, but you can find other camps in a wide range of prices, age groups: I have added some details about each camp to make it easy to browse, few are already or almost sold out.
They are in topic order, with the first one being All-in-one, meaning they have activities of different kinds, while the following are more topic-specific! I hope you like it!
