Spring and Summer Educational Camps

Kids love it when they have time off of school, but sometimes it can throw us parents for a loop! For households with two working parents it can be stressful to try and decide where your children will go or who will take care of them when they are out of school. This is why I start planning at the beginning of the school year! I either plan family vacations around this time, or I sit down with my children and research educational camps to suit their interests.

Spring and Summer camps are a great way to keep your children safe and entertained during those long periods off from school. I’m proud to say that this year a few of my children were accepted to Summer programs at prestigious universities! If you have older children, I encourage you to look into Summer study programs at colleges and universities that your children are interested in attending. It gives them a taste of what college will be like and helps them to become more independent before they’re really out on their own.

If you have younger children, I definitely recommend looking into KinderCare’s Spring and Summer camps. This Spring, KinderCare is offering an educational and exciting Science of Dirt camp that any young children are sure to love. Your children can enjoy hands-on science lessons, garden-related craft making, and instruction on how to prepare tasty veggie treats. If Spring break has already passed you by, you can still enjoy some of the fun from KinderCare’s Science of Dirt Camp with one of their take-home activities featured on KinderCare’s MomTV Channel. KinderCare also offers a variety of Summer camps including Wilderness 101, Spectacular Sports, Gross and Gooey Science, and Kids’ Kitchen.

With some good planning and research, time off from school doesn’t need to be a headache. Feel free to share with me what your children are up to this Spring and Summer vacation. Do they stay at home, visit grandma, volunteer, or go to camp? I’d love to hear how other working moms manage their homes when school is out!

Disclosure: Kindercare, through an agency, is a client.
