Here's an idea for those of you feeling particularly ambitious!
PLAN SUMMER CAMP AT HOME!
Some of my favorite summer memories from when I was a kid consist of my family's camps that were held at home. This included themed camps with lots of cousins, aunts, uncles, and family friends. To get you started here are a couple ideas!
1. Pick a theme - we had Olympic camp and Gym camp.
2. Plan a schedule for each day you will hold camp.
Camp could be every morning for a week, one day each week for a month, or all day every day for a few days including camping in the back yard! Have plenty of activities set for each time slot and rotate kids through them at set times.
3. Ask for help
Adult friends and relatives or older kids and teens can help you by teaching arts and crafts, gymnastics, archery, music or whatever their special talent might be.
4. Include plenty of fun activities like scavenger hunts, games, making smores by the fire, etc.
5. Have a special closing ceremony for your camp where kids perform or show of something they have created during camp and receive a special prize!
