Planning for a Super Summer

April 9th, 2018 | By

Woohoo! It’s time to start planning for summer! And one of the first things kids think about when it comes to summertime is … camp!

If you ask a grown up in your family or neighborhood, chances are they’ll say they went to summer camp when they were kids. They’ll probably also say they LOVED camp. That’s because summer camps focus on:

Fun and Making friends!

Summer camps and programs have activities for just about everyone:

  • doing arts and crafts
  • playing games and sports
  • swimming and boating
  • making s’mores and singing around the campfire
