Sports camps come in all shapes and sizes. There are all day camps with targeted sports, plus meals and swimming. There are sleep away elite camps for the more serious athlete, and active sleep away camps for the kids who want to get away and experience something new, maybe learn a new sport or two. There are 3-4 hour day camps that give kids just enough time to master a sport and tire out before heading home for the rest of the day. There are even summer evening camps for those kids who are busy all day but still want to get some sports instruction and play in before bed.
Tonight we'll be packing up the sports gear and other camp gear in anticipation of the first day of camp tomorrow. As my six year old daughter said to me this morning, "tomorrow, Mom, I won't have any trouble getting out of bed. It's a camp day!" This is why summer is my favorite time of year!
