Can you believe it’s almost summer break for the kids? We are starting to plan our family summer bucket list of fun and we always include at least one educational camp per child. My kids absolutely love attending camp with their peers and they get a much needed break from their siblings and mom. (Or, is it mom gets a much needed break?)
