There are plenty of holiday camps for kids, but finding the right one can take some research. Firstly, you should always involve your children in the process of choosing a summer camp, and book ahead, as the most popular camps, get full quickly. The first decision is probably whether to send them to a residential or a day camp; costs can vary widely and how much it’s costing is an important factor for most families too. On average, a day camp costs about $43 a day, while a residential camp costs around $85 per day. Take into consideration your child’s personality and interests when looking for the perfect camp; there are many themed and specialty camps to choose from. There are also camps for children with a mental or physical disability, and around a million special needs children enjoy attending camp every year.
