SUMMER CAMP ROUNDUP: LEARN NEW SKILLS, A SPORT, HOW TO ACT AND MORE
Wouldn’t it be nice to forget about work and bills, pack a bag and spend summer at camp? That’s probably impossible for you, but if you have children, they’ve got plenty of options.
Traditional sleep-away summer camps, athletics camps, technology camps … there’s something for everyone.
For a more complete listing, visit Kids Life Magazine, but here’s some notables:
