How was Spring Break for you all? Fast, busy, long? Any of those descriptions ring a bell? Mine is summed up pretty much just like that! Which lead me to believe that my decision to put my kids in summer camp was the right one.
It’s a difficult choice to make when you are thinking about putting your kids in camp. I get that time and money, in addition to your child’s safety and entertainment value are top of the list when considering options for the summer. Since my oldest son turned 3, we’ve been putting him in camp at least 2 weeks every summer, my daughter, when she was 2. I am a total researcher, and we experimented with different camps in Las Vegas over the years, but I have to say, the one that got the best response out of my kids was the Summit Ridge Day Camp at Henderson International School.
By now, I’m sure you’ve heard me talk over and over again about the Summit Ridge Day Camp, but truly, I am so impressed. Director, Lisa Beinstock, is super organized and passionate about providing an amazing experience for both the parents and the campers. The counselors have a strong enthusiasm to make sure the kids are having a great time, and I have the confidence knowing my kids are in a secure, safe location, and the variety of activities keeps them interested. Everyday I picked my kids up from camp, they were exhausted, yet couldn’t wait to go back the next day! And, with a full day like that, it gives me time to get stuff done without the guilt of not entertaining them throughout the whole summer break.
My kids loved the fact that they could go swimming, make movies, put on a play, do yoga, and learn camp-style games like, Gaga (I have no idea what this is, but my kids love it!). This year though, they are going to be thrilled to learn about the new climbing wall and inflatable obstacle course. My son LOVES the TV show, Wipe-Out…this is going to be right up his ally!
In addition to the summer camp, sports enthusiasts entering 3rd grade and up have an option to attend the Sports Camp directed by former NBA basketball player, Jerome Williams, and ran by his JYD (Junk Yard Dog) Staff.
To learn more about the instrumental activities directors, keep an eye out on my FaceBook page for their mini-bios and plans for summer time fun at Summit Ridge Day Camp.
This year’s camp will run from June 11th – August 3rd, and is accepting campers ages 4-12. You can still register on-line and get the Early Registration discount. A Summit Ridge Day Camp Alumni Open House will take place in May with opportunities to introduce new campers to the program.
If summer camp is something you are considering for your kiddos this summer, make sure to consider the Summit Ridge Day Camp before making your final decision.
