This summer, your children can live it easy or rush head long into sizzling summer fun camps brimming with nature, adventures, sports, STEAM, arts and crafts activities. Stock up on must-have sunscreen, hats, lip balm, sunglasses, snacks and a reusable water bottle for the best summer camp to-go bag ever! Some camps include transportation from pick up and drop off points within a limited geographic area, so be sure to ask. If your child attending daycare wants to attend an off-site camp, ask the director if they offer transportation to and from the camp site or will work with the camp’s driver. Residents or patrons may receive discounts, but visitors also are welcome. Bring your child’s immunization records and birth certificate in case they ask. You packed yet? Here we go!
