It may be winter and there’s snow on the ground, but it’s not too early to start thinking about summer. We’ve got four reasons why you should register for summer camp early!
1. Save Money
Register for summer camp early in the year and you might save some money. Why? Many camps offer waived registration fees or even discounted rates if you book early. Camps offer this incentive to apply early to help them fill their programs earlier in the year. Solidifying their registrations well in advance of the summer helps with planning out programs and activities. It’s a win-win for both the camp and parents!
2. Guarantee a Spot
Since most summer camps have a limited number of students they can accommodate, you run the risk of missing out if you wait. Once the cabins are full and classrooms booked, you’re out of luck and possibly out of options. Register for summer camp early, and you have peace of mind knowing that your child has set plans for the summer.
3. No last-minute scrambling
If you make sure that you register for summer camp early, you won’t find yourself scrambling at the last minute for supplies. Whether your child is going to soccer camp and needs cleats and shin guards, or you want to gather toiletries and extra pajamas for sleepaway camp, you have plenty of time to check-off your summer camp supplies shopping list. Plus, if you need to special order equipment or supplies, you have plenty of time to shop for deals online (there we go, saving money again) and have it shipped to you with plenty of time to spare.
4. Time to Plan What You’re Going to Do!
Now that you took the time to register for summer camp early, you’ve saved money, guaranteed your child has something to do this summer, and you’ve saved even more money by having time to bargain hunt for the supplies you need. What now? Time to plan your vacation and use that money you saved! Plan your own relaxing vacation, staycation, or even home renovation, whatever you want to do while the kids are away having a blast. Everyone should have fun in the sun this summer!
