    Never went to any camp and was happy with it. The library was with in walking distance.

    My daughters used to spend summers at a day camp. It was great the first few years when both the physical AND the cerebral were touched upon (neither of my girls are “sporty” and both love to read; also, my older one has balance issues that are genetic, which makes most sports nearly impossible for her), but new people came in charge and it went more and more towards sports. Thankfully, 2 years ago the older one got into an exclusive academic summer program (which also DID include some outdoor, sporty stuff) that is right up her alley. Last year we found a better, more balanced summer program for the younger one, and she’s hoping this year to get into the same program as her sister.

    My parents couldn’t afford “camp” for their kids, though a couple of years I did spend a week at a scout camp..Still, I was never at a loss for something to do. All it took was an interest in the world around me, and that’s something my parents didn’t teach me to suppress.

    Way back when, the local park had teenage activities leaders to oversee us kids doing a wide variety of crafts and playing various games (lots of them weren’t athletic) all summer long. It was free too! I wish that type of stuff could still happen today.

    My grandkids went to day camp the last 2 years. But somehow they never learned “Be kind to your web-footed friends”

    Free to the families, but paid for by the taxpayers, or which your parents were/are too. So in the long run your parents paid for them. Our city has programs like that every summer in larger parks for all children and this is a summer job for the teen leaders. They are trained to do that.

    In addition to the day camps my kids took swimming lessons, and sports camps. They met other kids from around the city who didn’t live in their neighborhood. I’ve always thought that those camps were the best programs that we had. We also sent our kids to over night camps for two weeks at a time, and they went to music camps. Parents were allowed to visit one weekend afternoon. Then one or two weeks at the end they spent with their grandparents. They liked being on their own and always looked forward to being away from their daily routines. Even now, in their late thirties, they look through the pictures, when they come home, and tell us stories about their summer days.
