    I watched your presentation this morning, April 7, on Global TV and was impressed by your list of summer camps for kids. I didn’t write down the list as I expected that I would be able to find them on your website. However, your site doesn’t contain the list presented on Global this morning. Please let me know where I can obtain this list for my grandkids.

    It is so sad with these high prices only rich children can go to these camps

    Hi Karen, there are several camps that offer financial assistance, and payment plans. There are also grants offered by a number of organizations to make sure every kid has a chance to go to summer camp. We’ve also outlined a few ways to find affordable summer camps here – Hope that helps!
