Though the weather these days might be near frightful, our thoughts are turning to summer (yes, summer!)…and to summer camps (yes, summer camps!) for our kidlets. We like to send our kids to camp every summer as a part of developing their independence (and to recover our own). They love it for the activities, the experiences and the enjoyment; we love it for the quiet house we have while they’re gone, and of course the amazing experiences they have and skills they develop.
