Depending on where you live there might be snow falling from the sky or maybe it’s just bone chillingly cold. What better way to get excited for warmer weather and sunshine then thinking of summer camp? It’s never too early to start making summer plans and arrangements for your children for when the school year comes to end in June.
At summer camp children learn real life skills, they develop self-esteem and gain a sense of independence and community. Whether playing team sports, exploring nature, conquering new heights or becoming part of a camp family, children have an opportunity to create memories that will last a lifetime. Each year parents become increasingly interested in having their children attend summer camp, whether its Day camp or overnight camp. For many parents however, giving their children the opportunity to spend the summer outdoors and make lifelong friends is not easy as summer camp is not cheap. On average day camp can cost $304 per week and overnight camp could cost as much as $2,000+ per week.
While it’s hard to put a price tag on your children’s learning and growth, as parents you certainly have other expenses to think about when considering summer camp. And of course you only want to see your child happy. Are you a parent who wants to give your child the best summer of their lives or do you know a child who could benefit from attending summer camp?
