If you haven’t crossed it off your To Do list yet, it’s time to tackle and finalize your summer camp planning.
As you know, there are tons of great summer camps in and around the Lake Travis area. Of course we have every sports-related camp you can think of to keep your kiddos active this summer. But we have lots of other types of camps too.
Did you know there’s an Emoji camp? An American Girls and Dolls camp? A Wizardry camp? A Teen Garage Band camp? Have you heard about Adulting 101 Camp? Well, you will…
Here are a few awesome summer camps in the Lake Travis area that should be on your radar:
Adulting Camp 101
This summer your kiddos can learn about real-world responsibilities at Adulting 101, a camp for children age 7-16. Camp starts at a reasonable hour in the morning, 9:30am, and ends at 7pm. A healthy chef-inspired dinner is included.
Your kiddos will learn how to make fiscally sound choices by starting their own 401(k) plan including basics about asset allocation and how to research no-name funds. Then it’s on to DIY life hacks and street smarts, so they’ll inherently know how to MacGyver themselves out of any situation with duct tape and a fidget spinner.
From coping with failure to managing shifting priorities to setting reasonable expectations, your kiddos will be ready for school next year with valuable life lessons. Plus, they’ll learn how to make Eggs Benedict for special occasions, so you can sleep late. #wishfulthinking
Pop Culture Comes Alive at Challenge Island West Austin
Challenge Island Camps combine one-of-a-kind enrichment programs on the cutting edge of S.T.E.A.M. (science, technology, engineering, art, and math) education and with 21st Century Learning.
