Quality Care for Children, an Atlanta-based non-profit organization, is reminding parents, through a newly launced wesite, www.allgacamps.org, that it's still not too late to find a great summer camp for children. The website, a partnership with Bright from the Start: Georgia Department of Early Education and Learning, offers the state’s first-ever searchable database of more than 700 summer programs, making it easy for Georgia parents to find the perfect spot for their children.

As a bonus for trying the search tool, parents who sign-in and use it during the month of June, will also be entered to win a $250 VISA gift card in a drawing.

One of the unique features of the site is that after signing in, parents can compare features of different camps side-by-side. By using the tool parents can compare the camps' activities, session dates, prices and more.

"In the past, finding and evaluating a camp program has been hit or miss,” said Pam Tatum, CEO of Quality Care for Children. “Now parents can easily access a single statewide database, plug in their particular needs, and quickly pinpoint the camps that meet their criteria.”

With the end of school and more parents working full- or part-time, summer camps are more popular than ever, Tatum said. “It’s not uncommon that summer plans change, or job situations change, so this is a service that will help a lot of families now and in the future who need to quickly find camps and make educated choices.”
