Summer for Kids with Two Working Parents
I know this is not super-timely, as it's November. However, I am wondering what our options will be when our kids are in school full-tme. Now they are still in day care, preschool. What do parents who both work do for their kids in the summer. I am dreading this, and I'd like to be home more, but it may not be an option. Thanks for sharing.

We (luckily) found a sumer camp that was only $25 a week. Before that we were paying $80 a week for daycare. Maybe you could find a local teenager that would babysit.

We always went to a summer day camps. They were usually at churches.
Movies, swimming regular trips to the library.. playground, parks.. we took our own lunches..
The City Parks and Recreation also had day camps and usually so does the YMCA.
It was always a blast. Here in Austin in January, they start holding information meetings for the different summer day camps..

CAMP. For my girls it was, and still is, Girl Scout camp (note: they will need to become a member of GS, but do not have to belong to a troop or currently be active). There are also Y camps. Many park and rec depts also offer day camps. Most camps start registrations in February.
Day care - you can place them in a day care facility or you can hire someone to come to your home and watch them.

We live in Denver and the Schlessman YMCA was our lifesaver until the kids were old enough for camp - they are open 7 to 7, very flexible, great staff and great field trips.
