Last Minute Summer Camps



As we are now well into August some of you may already be lamenting the approach of the end of summer and back to school. However, many of you may be panicking at the thought of three more weeks left with the kids. If you are like me the planned vacation is long over and organizing and planning activities that will keep your kids active, engaged and away from all electronics is, frankly, much more difficult than trying to decide what to make for dinner every night. So I’ve done a little research and there are still some end -of -summer camps with spots available for any of you desperate parents who need a little break.shutterstock_117950896
