Summer Camps

Let's talk about the summer camps. Recall how in destve we stayed in summer camps and will do so that our children would not have missed this opportunity. It’s the middle of winter so naturally you may be thinking about summer weather, and the opportunities for fun, adventure and a change in scenery that a summer camp provides. A little planning now will make it possible for some of those day dreams to come true.
Types of Summer Camps/Summer Experiences. When the word “camp” comes up many children and adults think about traditional, outdoor living, sleep over type camps. But there are actually many different types of camps and summer experiences that can help you achieve your goals. An increasing number of traditional residential camps are accessible to children and adults with disabilities, along with day camps, summer classes, adapted athletic teams and tours.
Here are a few categories to think about:
• Learning about the outdoors
• Theater/performing arts
• Art
• Music
• Special interests such as computers, science, fashion design or cooking
• Hobbies such as chess, short wave radio, scrap-booking, bird watching or gardening
• Sports
• Cheerleading
• Sailing or boating
• Career related jobs, or internships
