  • 11, group from our town & about 45 minute drive away from home. Oh, and for one week.
    When they were younger my kids ages 6, went to a starter camp it was only Thurs - Sunday. They did that for two years and then went for a week. The same camp all three years.
    This year its a different camp with a group from our town.

  • Nope. We could never afford stuff like that. We couldn't even afford day camp IF I wanted to send them (which I don't).
