Are you wondering whether to do Summer Camp or not?
Summer Camp has been on every local mom’s mind these past few weeks. Trying to decide what to do because of our new normal is tough.
I’ve found camps that are drop-off and virtual in your home.
Whatever your decision is, you do what you need to do for you and your family.
These summer camps are doing their best to create a fun and safe environment. They are summer camps I know and trust.
