Summer day camp for kids

  1. 1. Why enroll your child in a Day Camp?
  2. 2. First of all, remember that a DAY camp is different from an OVERNIGHT camp. If you are considering a day program for your kids, these “camps” are usually in session from June until Labor Day (depending on your region’s school year).
  3. 3. Also, consider signing a child up for a day camp versus regular child care since a typical child care center does not always have those special activities kids want to enjoy in the summer. After all, we don’t want children to feel like they are in the same routine they have all school-year long. This is a special time for kids!
  4. 4. You need to know that your children are supervised while they enjoy their summer break. This is where a summer day camp can help. All images © Can Stock Photo unless otherwise noted
  5. 5. Kids should be given ample outdoor play time. Summer programs are a great place for kids to meet others in their age groups.
  6. 6. This can be a great comfort for some children, especially the younger ones, some of whom may not have had any prior pre- school or kindergarten experience away from the house. (Image: Microsoft Clip Art)
  7. 7. Will they be able to enjoy a variety of arts & crafts? Will there be “theme days” or weeks?
  8. 8. One of the things kids look forward to most during the summer months is going to theme or water parks & other special events. It will be great if your day camp offers these type of activities.
  9. 9. Check with your accountant or tax professional. Visit the site for more info. (Screenshot Image of IRS page Created Privately)
  10. 10. It’s about giving your children a fun & satisfying summer vacation experience in secure & structured surroundings. Call your child care facility, town, or even the National Institute of Health to learn more.
