Our kids are increasingly spending more and more time in front of screens. Pandemic lockdowns forced kids to adjust to online learning and their smartphones were their only socialization for a large chunk of time. Even with things returning to normal, the effects of screen dependent children are being seen across the globe.
Summer camp seems the perfect summertime solution for elementary-age kids so they don’t sit around the house bored, and so they can make friends and learn new things while having fun. As our children grow out of their "little kid years," we sometimes forget they still need those kinds of experiences they had when they were younger, just in a different form.
It’s no secret – kids’ camps are not cheap!
It can be hard for families on a budget to pull together enough money to send their kids to a quality camp. That’s why it is so important to do your homework and make sure you’re getting the best bang for your buck.
