Summer may seem like a long way off, but it's time to start planning now if you want to send your kids to a day or overnight camp. Don't feel like you're pushing your kids out the door just because you're a stay-at-home mom who wants to sign her kids up for summer camps. Camps shouldn't just be thought of as a summer time daycare provider. Camps give children a great opportunity to learn a new skill, meet new friends, and socialize in a different environment. They also give full-time moms a much deserved break, even if it is only for a week.
Camp Expo '10 in Columbia, MD is an annual camp fair that gives parents the chance to check out more than 60 different camps in Maryland and around the region. Whether you're looking for a sports camp, an art camp, a religious camp, drama camp, an overnight camp, or a day camp you'll likely find something of interest and that fits your budget and schedule.
Preview what types of camps are available in the region by doing an online search. The website MySummerCamps allows you to narrow your search by camp type, state and other criteria. By getting an idea of what your child might be interested in before you go to Camp Expo, you won't have to visit every vendor to find what you're looking for. Plus, you'll be able to form questions ahead of time and do a side-by-side comparison of camps. Camp representatives will be available at Camp Expo '10 to answer all of your questions about day and sleep-away camps.
