You’re looking forward to summer because it lets you spend more time with the kids. But you’re also facing the season with a bit of dread because how are you going to keep them amused when they’re at home? You and your spouse both work and you really can’t afford to hire a babysitter for them all day.

There’s always summer camp. And we’re not talking out-in-the-middle-of-nowhere forest enclaves that keep your offspring far from your side, although that is available. Instead, you’ll find many camps that last just a few hours or a few days per week over the summer. They cover many interests and activities that should appeal to each one of your kids.
