In April is when you want to start thinking and signing up for some of these camps; but I am finding that with the economy, people are picking and choosing and less kids are going to some of these camps. My inbox gets flooded with deals on last minute sign ups for camps that are not full. Here are some to investigate as we head into late June:
Boy Scouts and Girls Scouts – this summer it’s all about scouting! Holly is signed up for a horseback riding camp and a summer lake camp through the girls scouts; Harrison will be doing his first week-long overnight with his boy scout troop. It’s all very exciting!
Not to be outdone, Heather will also have her overnights with her church mission group. I just love all of these, because the kids learn about community, enviroment and really, what makes the world go around.
Seattle Children’s Theater – Heather will be taking an Improv class during this summer. Don’t want to go to Seattle? On the Eastside there are drama classes at Village Theater, Issaquah KidStage and SecondStory Repertory Theater at Redmond Town Center.
Pacific Science Center – Holly is repeating a camp she took last year – Get Set to Be a Vet! because she loved it so much the first time! Harrison will test his skills of robotics underwater! There are so many interesting camps to choose from, and many different locations, you don’t necessarily have to go into Seattle to attend.
Sounders Soccer Camps – always excellent and usually once during the week a Sounder player visits the camp. Very cool!
We discovered how cool Gotta Dance is, when we finally signed Holly up for several classes this past spring. Now Harrison and Heather will be taking a couple of classes over the summer to work on techniques: Jazz and Musical Theater, respectively.
There are so many camps to choose from and too many to do in one summer!
