Summer Camps 2009

March 27, 2009

It's the same every year: When school lets out, students cheer the hours and hours of free time they have to relax and enjoy themselves.

At least for a few days or weeks. And then parents hear, "I'm bored. There's nothing to do."

Here is one option: Summer camps. With Tri-State-area camps offering everything from computer gaming to science to Shakespeare to sports skills, there's plenty to choose from for all age groups.

Here's our annual listing of camps. Plan ahead. Call early; some fill up fast. Also, some camps offer discounts for early registration; ask when you register.
