Summer camps?
Mon, 04-20-2009 - 1:02pm

Are you sending your 8/9 year old to summer camp? Is it just a day camp or is it a sleep away camp?

How did you choice it?

If you are not doing camps, what are your plans for the summer?

Our school offers a free 1/2 day camp for the first month of vacation that is like an enrichment program.

Ian goes to a day camp offered by the rec department of the town that his school is in. As far as camps go, it's not expensive and he enjoys it.

Our town runs a 1/2 day camp from the end of June until the end of July. We usually save our vacation until August, so that really only leaves a week for other things(I don't want to over-book them either). My middle DS (9) will be going to Elderhostel with my MIL this year for almost a week. My youngest DS loves sports, so I signed him up for a 1/2 day multisports camp in August and my oldest DS(12) will be doing zoo camp. This year he is old enough to be a junior zookeeper, so its more hands-on with the animals.

I am looking for a few one week summer camps. He wants to do a chess camp while continuing tennis and swimming.

He really needs to be away from the house and out doing stuff with kids his own age otherwise he will bug me all day to play video games, go on the computer, watch tv and complain about being bored. That will be despite going to GA often and meeting up with friends at the pool or park weekly.
