This year, many parents are facing the prospect of having a summer unlike others before. Depending on where you live, a summer camp in your area may not open this year. In areas where they are open, there are parents that are hesitant to send their kids back.
Summer camp is tough for some parents to swing during an average year. Many full-day programs, which working parents depend on, are pricey. Free or low-cost community programs are out there, but tough to secure spots in. This stands to be tough for parents who are already struggling because of closures and layoffs related to the global health crisis.
For all these reasons and more, keeping the kids home this summer may look attractive. Parents who are able to do this still face a challenge. Keeping the kids busy without letting them be on screens all day isn’t easy for parents who have other responsibilities to tend to during long summer days.
The good news is that an at-home summer camp is totally within your grasp. Adapt these ideas for your family and you can enjoy a DIY summer camp in your own home.
