Im a sahm i opted out of sending my children to summer camp. Because im not working, my kids need a break from the school rountine. Rising early , spending 7 hrs in structured place,ex:.school, summer camp etc. This is their time to rest, play, ride bikes. My daughter disagrees she thinks its ok to send kids to summercamp. I do have to add summer camp may be worthwhile, kids have something to do during summer break. But i think sahm should spend time with children during summer. Go ahead call be an idiot.

I'm a sahm and if I didn't send my dd to summer camp there would be a war in the house lol. She loves it more than anything, talks about it all year. But yeah getting up early everyday, even in the summer, sucks!

I agree with you unless they really want to go.

I don't think it needs to be all or nothing. Mine are doing one week of Cub Scout day camp (son) and VBS (daughter) right in the middle of summer vacation. (They're scheduled for the same week.) It adds a bit of variety to the routine without overscheduling them.
