Greetings, NOLA Parents! Hopefully Spring is treating you well and that this post about summer camp comes just in time. It seems odd that we have to start figuring out summer camp plans so early in the year. Although after spending so much “quality time” with the kids over Mardi Gras, making sure they have somewhere to go and something to do besides bicker with each other and destroy my house for weeks on end seems very, very timely.
But let’s face it, figuring out summer plans months in advance isn’t always easy, especially if you’re a procrastinator like me. And trying to accommodate multiple ages, interests and schedules makes it even more complicated.
Fortunately, the programs that you see listed here are the best of the best and there is something for everyone, whether your camper is an aspiring artist, athlete, veterinarian, engineer or lives a little outside the box.
Personally, I like to put the little ones in the same program over many weeks and sign my 8yo up for different week-long camps so she can be adventurous and explore things she may not otherwise be able to do during the school year.
At the end of the day, though, it has to work for the family… and when I say “family” I mean “me”.
Good luck and if you have any questions or need to reach me, shoot me a note at firstname.lastname@example.org!
