It's only April! Yeah I know, but if you're like most parents you will procrastinate making arrangements to have your children in camps, STEM programs, or even childcare; then, the last day of school you will slap yourself in the head and start the summer childcare scramble! Don't do it to yourself. Start now and you will have a worry free summer. If you; wait a lot of camps will be filled up, and then you'll really be hurting.
We are so lucky to live in Colorado and Denver there are so many activities, camps and learning opportunities for children to enjoy through the summer. I've been finding some fun links for you to take a look at and see what your children might be interested in.
Outdoor camps and adventures:
Arts and Crafts camps:
I'm sure that there are a lot more to choose from but I've tried to include that, I felt, would be fun. I also tried to include a bit of a variety but the opportunities for summer camps for kids is endless. A lot of schools offer camps now too. Summer is such a fun time for kids, and when we wax nostalgic we too feel nostalgic about summer because of all the fond memories it conjures up for us.
If you still need to plan for further care begin the process now because don't forget that childcare givers go on vacation too and agencies can get understaffed quickly. Of course, I recommend the best, Babysitters In a Pinch, and if you choose to go with us it is super important to get those requests in ASAP because we have a pretty small elite staff.
In the mean time good luck with summer, and plan ahead to get the best out of the summer months!
