Today is the last day of summer camp for MiniMe. It is a theater/drama camp and she has loved every single minute of it. Perfect for my little Drama Queen. Over the years, I've signed MiniMe up for at least a dozen different little summer camps. There was dance camp. Art camp. Photography camp. Art camp again. Dance camp again. Swimming & recreation.
My local paper has run at least one story each week about what kids are doing this summer at camp. Today's story was about a Leadership Camp at the YMCA. Plenty of educational, enriching and fun things for kids to do around here.
Which got me thinking ... how come I didn't get to do a fun summer camp growing up? So I asked Mimi.
"We didn't need summer camps for kids back then. Being home was summer camp."
That's me at "summer camp at home" in 1980. At least MiniMe has actual human friends at summer camp.
