Nah, I never did. That is just us. We wanted our family to always be together.
The only camp he is going to is a baseball camp and that is because he has been begging to go for a couple years now and is finally old enough!
My kids will be going to VBS. My oldest (7) wants to go to a sleep away camp, but I am terrified and this year we dont have the money but maybe next year. I dont know.
Quoting bren_darlene: Nah, I never did. That is just us. We wanted our family to always be together.
They will go to a Jr. Master Gardener's day camp for a week, then in August we'll go to a week long Bible camp. I stay on as a counselor, but they pretty much do their own thing.
One of ours has three camps this summer, all of them morning only camps (like from 9 to 12) and two of them are 4 days long, one is 5 days long. We use it as a socialization (gasp! :)) helper and just so he can get out and experience different things and kids. We have one car, and my husband uses it for work, so we don't get out as much. This is a nice change, although it's alot of work to get used to new schedules!
My daughter is too young right now, but when she gets older, absolutely! We'll definitely send her to camps :) I think that 1) they provide great opportunities to do/learn things that she can't at home and 2) it's important for her to build a sense of independence and self-sufficiency away from us, her family.
