Parents, as we all know, find it challenging when children are on summer break to keep them entertained. My main problem with my own children was the lack of physical and mental activity. I did not want their health to suffer due to boredom. I was forced to think of affordable ideas to keep them active.
First, I telephoned my local YMCA to learn of any age appropriate camps offered. Realizing that I have a tight budget, I inquired if they were any programs to assist me financially with paying for the camp. Thankfully, there was! Then, I talked to my children to find out which day camp they wanted to attend and signed them up.
