For those of us with school age kids, summer doesn't really start until school is out. School ended for my daughter last week - so that must mean it's summer :) We actually have a different summer schedule than a lot of the parents around here. I (mostly) work from home, and my wife has a pretty flexible schedule. So, we don't sign our daughter up for camp all summer long. She attends one camp this summer - "Camp of the Arts" in Columbia. It's a pretty cool camp - they teach dance, and music, some craft work - and they put on a play. The kids work for the entire 3 weeks on learning their lines, making their costumes, and building the sets. At the end of it all, they put on the show to a packed auditorium (two days in a row). It's a great time - we love it, our daughter loves it. She's been going for 3 years now, and everyone looks forward to it.
