Summer Camps A to Z

Whether it be A rt, The B ible, or C amping in the great outdoors, the A, B, Cs of summer enrichment programs for children are filled with endless opportunities.  In this post, I attempt to round up as many summer camps and resources as I can, but it is not as comprehensive as I would hope. I encourage readers to let us all know of other summer programs by using the comment section.  I will also include additional resources as I stumble upon them in my weekly “F is for Free and Frugal Family Fun” blog. Mark your calendars!  The Minnesota Parent Camp Fair , Saturday, February 23. This event is FREE! Now is the best time to get a head start on planning for summer camps. Meet camp representatives from day and overnight, music, science, computer, art, performance programs and more! Before registering for any of these programs, read the Alphabet Adventures Disclaimer .
