Time to Plan

I am not sure where the time goes, but here we are, another school year almost done and another summer to start planning for. My email has been bombarded with things to do this summer and the mail is coming from all of the out-of-state camps wanting my children to attend. I am behind the wagon this year in planning my summer vacations, especially when it comes to what to do with my children this summer when I need to work, or my daughter can’t babysit.

Most camp registrations have opened up, so it’s time to pull out that planner and get to work. There are so many options from art, sports, or even video gaming camps. I know my goal is to keep the kids off their devices as much as possible so their brains are not mush come August when it’s time for school to start. But that is easier said than done, especially when so many of their learning apps are on the iPad.

Here are my tips to successfully plan this summer. First, work on a budget so you know what you can afford for the summer. Next, call a family meeting and talk with your kids to see what they want to do this summer. They may also have some needs to address for the upcoming school year that you need to take into account while planning other camps. Finally, book the camps before they fill up. In this guide, you will find several options for your children in whatever they are interested in. We’ve gathered all camps from Baton Rouge, New Orleans, and beyond to help you plan out the perfect summer for your littles.

Happy planning and happy summer!
