9 Affordable Ways to Pay for Summer Camp

Dust off the beach bags and break out the swimsuits—even if it may not feel like it, summer vacation is just around the corner. With those warmer temperatures come kids with one dangerous thing on their hands: free time.

If you're already on the hunt for activities to keep the rugrats busy, then you're probably also considering summer camp. Camps are a great option because they frequently expose children to experiences they would not get at home while simultaneously teaching skills like self-care, teamwork and conflict resolution.

The challenge, however, is selecting a camp that fits both the child and that pesky household budget. But with a bit of early research and some savvy saving ideas, you can find a great camp option for your child that won't break the bank.
