Taking care of children is a hectic business. Depending on how busy their schedules are, you may be constantly driving them to and from various locations if they have extracurriculars, want to visit friends, attend parties, play-dates, etc.
That’s why it’s important that parents plan ahead, stick to a schedule, and create a routine that works. But waiting until the last minute to do this can be a pain, especially if you’re not prepared for a new season and a new routine.
Summer may feel far off, but with your kids out of school, you’ll need to find something to fill their time. Why not take a look at your summer camp options now so that you’re not scrambling last minute to find something to enrol them in?
Spots tend to fill up quickly, too, and enrolment actually starts up earlier than you might think. Here are some summer camp ideas to get you started.
Coding Camp for Kids
Have you ever considered summer coding camps for kids? The world of technology is ever-growing, and learning how to code is actually easier than it looks. Choose a class where they can learn the foundations in a fun and interactive environment that encourages learning through doing.
Kids as young as seven years old can learn computer programming so don’t be shy to sign your children up if they’ve shown any interest in computer technology.
Photography and Film Classes for Kids
Do any of your kids have an eye for photography or are they interested in film? You should sign them up for a summer photography and film camp that teaches them key technical principles while practicing during daily field trips, fun shooting assignments, and more.
It’s a great opportunity to make new friends and get some hands-on experience.
Dance Camps for Toddlers and Up
Fun for all ages, there’s a dance camp out there for any kid who loves to move. There’s ballet, hip hop, jazz, and even general dance classes for toddlers. Dancing is great because it gets kids moving but it also develops their coordination skills, as well as challenges their minds as they learn new moves.
Music Camps for Singing and Instruments
If your children love to sing or are interested in playing an instrument, then it’s time to consider a music camp for kids. There are even instrument exploration camps where children can try out a whole range of instruments to see which ones they like.
Of course, there are camps out there where kids get to explore nature through hiking, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, boating, and more. These types of camps offer the traditional experience where kids either stay overnight for several days, or they can attend during the daytime.
There are a ton of options to explore under this category. Depending on the location you choose, some even may offer archery, arts and crafts, survival lessons, sports, and a variety of games.
It’s not too early to make a list and go over the options with your kids. Preparing in advance is a great way to make sure that they get a spot before they all fill up.
