Finding the Perfect Summer Camp for Your Child
Unlike most parents, I probably started my research a bit late in the year, given that I was trying to find a suitable summer camp for my two daughters. A friend had informed me about camps.com and I soon found several camps that met my criteria. The only problem was that the first group I contacted were already booked for the session I had requested. Live and learn.
Thankfully, camps.com has thousands of summer camp listings and I was able to find a summer camp that had room for my daughters. Next year, however, when I start the process again, I won’t wait until May. Summer camps, I learned, fill up as early as February. We ended up with a great camp, so I suppose there is always room if you’re willing to look a little harder. In all, the entire task only took about an hour, by the time I began making arrangements with the summer camp of my choosing. They took my reservation and sent out a nice package with an application. Within a week, they had my check and the process was complete. Thanks, camps.com!
I will advise parents though that we were looking for a generic summer camp and not a specialty camp, which may fill up earlier on average. Good luck!
