Whenever Memorial Day ends, I feel like we are a few steps closer to summer but it’s bittersweet. School will end in a few weeks and then summer camp begins. This year my 5yo DD graduated from her enrichment kindergarten class. Once summer camp begins I always feel like July 4th is here before we can take a deep breath.
I have learned over the past two years how important summer camp is every year. It gives my kids an opportunity to meet new friends, try something new (which is sometimes difficult) or simply stay busy over the summer with activities…. The YMCA offers a wide variety of half day and full day camps and for working parents the before and after care offered is a blessing in disguise. I am fortunate my kids were able to participate in a summer camp over the last two years. This year we are trying a new location so I am hoping they have a wonderful and fun filled summer camp experience.
I remember going to overnight camp for a week and that was quite an experience. It may be a consideration somewhere down the road. For right now I’m just fine with day camp! Wishing all my campers a summer filled with great memories.
