If you’re looking for help in comparing summer camps, check out the new Summer Camp Guide at LAParent.com. You’ll find it at the top of the homepage, in the “What’s Hot” menu.
The guide has links to our articles about choosing a summer camp, traditional camps and camps for kids with disabilities, and it’s also where you’ll find our Ask the Camp Director section filled with tips from local camp directors.
And thanks to a partnership with ActivityHero, you can also use this new tool to sort and compare camps by criteria that are important to you – location, age, price, etc. – view photos of each camp and do a side-by-side comparison. You can see camp schedules, detailed activity descriptions and parent reviews. From there you can click to visit each camp’s website, or you can go through ActivityHero and register your child for a camp and pay online.
There are hundreds of camps and programs to choose from in the L.A. area. Need a camp for a kid who is crazy about horses, one that’s convenient for drop-off on your way to work, or one with a half-day program so your family has afternoons free for summer fun together? This camp shopping hack is almost certain to make your life easier.
Founded in 2012 by two moms who wanted to make it easier to plan kids’ activities, ActivityHero is a resource for camps, classes and workshops that allows you to do all of your research on one site.
And it’s one more reason to make www.laparent.com your go-to source for all things family.
