    Of course there is the charge for the summer camp. But what are the extra expenses- maybe even hidden expenses of summer camp that would add to the true cost of camp? Here are a few I could think of Gas to and from camp (more $$ if it is a day camp with daily drop offs and pick ups) also more...

    $1 movie admission Tuesday mornings at 10 AM. Not sure there are any playing that my kids want to see, but I hope so. :) I wish they extended it out a bit further into August because my kids won't return to school until the day after Labor Day. AMC Theaters Summer MovieCamp - $1 Summer Movies

    Well, we decided to bite the bullet and send our gymnast daughter to a weeklong, overnight summer camp. It is normally almost $1000 for the week! BUT we were able to talk the gym into going one of the first weeks so it reduced the price to $745. Then we signed up early in January to get $50...

    I just signed up both dds to go to camp for a week with the youth at church. I went as a child and it was very rewarding. I thinkit is totally worth the extra money. Does anyone else send their kids?

    We are planning a vacation the first or second week of July to visit our son, but we don't know anything about the area. I am hoping someone can give me more ideas on where to stay, what to do, etc. I would hate to reserve a room in a hotel that is not in a good, safe, secure location. We are...

    I was so glad to hear from him. He said he misses home, but that it wasn't that bad. He said there is one guy in the platoon who keeps getting them in trouble and they have to do extra push ups and jumping jacks because of it, but other than that he is doing good. He did mention he was sore from...

    It took me a few hours to adjust and accept it. I have a major headache from crying on and off for 2 hours straight. I did better when he moved out after high school....he eventually moved back in. But I didn't even cry when he left then. I don't know why I feel the way I do now. Maybe it is the...
