There is a summer program in  my area that is highly reccommend but it so hard to get in. I am so over it that I am going to just put my son in the summer program that he attended  before.

Do you apply for summer programs earlier ? What are you strategies in getting  your child/children in summer program especially one that you like ?

Most of the summer camps we do don't have waiting lists. However, we do start putting in reservations and payments now.

 As soon as I know we're hoping to get them into one, (and can afford it) I send in payment and registration.  The church camp I don't worry about, but my daughter wants to go to dance camp this year, so I do need to pay attention to registration deadlines and fees for that one.

Ours don't start releasing information until April.

I sign them up for the ones they attend right away so we have no issues.

we don't have anything like that. I mean where you have to apply to get in. However, I hate that all of them are like daycare instead of actual programs. I have never been impressed when I have run into groups of these kids at the summer camps/programs while out and about so I'm hesitant to sign my kids up for anything of the sort.

I start looking in February of every year.  I look all over and take leads from other moms and my kids' suggestions.  I have learned to go with what my kids like.  Afterall, it's their summer experience.

My kids just go to camp (the same one I went to when I was younger). I'm not aware of special programs that require early registrations to get a spot.

We don't!! With 4 kids we can't afford such things.
