Summer is right around the corner!
It’s that time of year when busy moms are met with the task of planning what to do with the kids all summer. For most of us, summer presents a welcomed, slower pace. It is a time where we enjoy staying up later and having less to check off our daily to-do lists.
But for working and non-working moms alike, summer-time also means filling your kid’s time with activities to exercise their minds and bodies. Along with the slower pace, we are faced with the added pressure of providing our kids with fun things to do during the summer months.
Often the goal is keeping them active, and sparking their creativity by allowing them to try new things while they have the time off from the busy school year. Selfishly, we all have another goal in mind. Let’s face it; we all know it takes a little planning to avoid the two words moms most often dread during a long summer day - “I’m bored.”
Luckily, there are a variety of available camps in our area from which to choose. We have camps ranging from the traditional week long or overnight summer camps filled with kayaking, rock climbing, archery, water play and crafts. Or the more specialized camp that focuses on sports, art, building, drama or horseback riding.
The Williamson Herald’s 2014 Summer Camp Guide provides a great resource for busy moms, like you and me, who are trying to plan a fun-filled summer for kids of all ages. Registration is now in process for most of these camps, so don’t hesitate.
Sign them up now, so you don’t miss out. Then put your feet up, relax, and breathe a sigh of relief that as the school year is wrapping up, this is one thing you can confidently check off the list!
