Booking a Busy Summer (Plus KinderCare Learning Camps & Survey Results)

School’s out, and Momma’s on duty full time. For the next 12 weeks. Our summer calendar is filling up quickly—and I like it that way! There will be summer camp, Camp Grandma and a host of daily activities designed to keep me out of the loony bin.

We have scheduled play dates, library events and camps. Throughout the summer, I’ll have time with all three girls, time with just one or two and time with none at all. Because every mom needs a break now & then.

Stacia leaves for Girl Scout camp on Monday. The following week is VBS at church—half days, but I think it will be enough to provide some relief. After that, each girl will spend a week at my parents’ house—the different combinations of kids always makes for an interesting time. And, I’ve given myself a week in the middle of the summer for a bit of a mommy vacation.

The week Brenia is away at Girl Scout camp will be Stacia’s week at Camp Grandma’s. And, Lorelai will spend her days at KinderCare summer camp. She’s excited to go to camp like her sisters, I’m excited for a kidfree week and the hubby & I are both thrilled she’ll have the chance to spend time with kids her age in a fun, educational environment.

KinderCare has 12 summer camp themes from May through August. Each one is designed to blend summer fun with unique learning opportunities, which is what the survey says parents like me want for their children. I’m just having trouble deciding which one Lorelai would like best—she’s into icky, gooey things so I’m leaning towards the Gross & Gooey or other science-centered activities. On the other hand, what says summer camp more than water play?

So, help me decide—which one sounds more like Lorelai? I’m leaning heavily against anything that involves food, what with all her allergies. Other than that, it’s wide open. She’s such a busy, active kid that I can’t think of anything she wouldn’t enjoy.

What are you planning for your kids this summer?


I have been compensated for sharing KinderCare’s summer camps and survey results, but all opinions are, as always, 100% mine!
