Why Explore Fictional Characters?
Summer is a time to relax and have fun with your kids. You may be tempted (and they may be begging) to turn on the TV, video games and other electronic devices to cure your kids’ boredom. But it’s healthier to encourage your kids to connect with fictional characters that don’t require an “on” switch.
Books introduce you to an endless range of incredible fictional characters and give you a peek into places and times you may have never imagined—even whole new imaginary worlds. (Dr. Seuss, anyone?)
Looking for an exciting summer program to get them outside playing and away from the electronics?

Create a camp with your kids and get other local families involved, and everyone will have an amazing summer adventure!
In this article I’ll show you how you and your kids can start a neighborhood summer camp filled with fun, educational and creative activities.
Why Start a Summer Camp?
Happy kids greet the summer with massive anticipation. Parents, on the other hand, have to scramble to find appropriate and affordable activities to keep their kids active and entertained throughout the summer.
Summer camp is a great opportunity for kids to bond with their peers in activities different than those during the school year.
Instead of sending your kids away to camp, work with them to create your own day camp that everyone can enjoy. Even your littlest kids can contribute. Then recruit other local families to give their input and help out.
