At this time of the year, most parents and their children are focusing on Halloween. Although it may seem early to consider registering for Ontario summer camps for 2013, there are many good reasons to do it.
Popular summer camp programs tend to fill earlier than others and, in order to reserve space, parents have to register early. Peter Truman, Director of Kettleby Valley Camp just north of Toronto, Ontario, recommends that parents start thinking about summer long before the warm weather gets here. “Last summer, we had so many families looking for summer camp opportunities in May and June. And a lot of people ended up missing out because we simply don’t have space.”
Sending kids to camp can add up, especially if you have more than one camper. Every dollar you can save helps and at this time of year, most camps offer discounts for families who register early for camp. By registering early, parents can also spread the cost of summer camp programs over several months, so it pays to plan now.
Saving money and ensuring you have a spot is important, but many families have a hard time planning so far in advance. Vacations, family visits and soccer games haven’t even begun to come into focus. For parents who fall under this category, camps like Kettleby Valley offer some flexibility. Families who register in November can change their dates until March 15th. Peter explains, “This way, parents know they have a spot for their children, they save money on camp fees, and if plans change, they can switch their sessions without any additional costs.”
So once the tricking and treating is over, you might want to start considering camps for your kids. With all the benefits of planning early for summer brings, more and more people are doing it.
