February is in full swing and buried inside the month dedicated to love is also a bit of panic. It’s the month that I need to be sure our forms for after-school care next year get in and accepted for my son. It’s also the time I need to sign my daughter up for Kindergarten and be sure she is accepted into extended day care since our town only has half day Kindergarten. Both of which are reminders that summer is coming (even though it’s freezing outside) and it’s time to get signed up for summer camp.
Neurotic when it comes to having the kids activities and care all set way in advance, if you’re anything like me then right now you are probably on the hunt for a summer camp.. Last year we had our first experience with summer camp since my son was too old to continue on at our daycare. We felt he needed more activities, the ability to swim, take swim lesson, plays sports and be with older children instead of toddler. This year both kids will be heading to camp and for our family it was a no-brainer choice in picking Life Time Athletic for Summer Camp.
For those that read my blog regularly or follow my facebook page you are well aware of my family’s love for Life Time Athletic. The facilities are immaculate, the pools are stunning, the kids academy is filled with more fun than our kids can have in day. Activities like Zumba, Sports Skills, Art, Music, Cheer and so many more. Every staff member we have interacted with at Life Time has been so nice. The Kids Academy staff are great with both our kids that have very different personalities.
I wanted to post and share about the camp at Life Time because I know how stressful it can be to a) find a good place that you trust b) find a place that your kids will have a good time and c) find a place where the staff is checked, trained and enjoys their time with your children.
