It’s getting to be that time of year again, the time when parents turn their attention to planning the family’s summer. If you have school aged children, this may entail planning the kids’ summer camps and activities. To help in the time-consuming task of searching for and sorting through various camps, I have compiled a list of day camps, sport and other activity camps offered here in Steamboat Springs, CO. I hope these ideas ease the stress of planning activities to combat the dreaded words, “I’m bored”.
