Still searching for summer camps? Here's your list!
So you've put it off and put it off and hemmed and hawed and thought and thought. And now, school is nearly over and you still haven't decided where to send the kids for summer camp. We tried to warn you a few months ago that this was coming, but the procrastination bug set in and you didn't do it.
Well, the bad economy might be working in your favor on this one. A recent story said that camps in St. Petersburg were not getting as many kids this year as they did in 2008. And another story even said that one camp was canceled because of budget cuts.
If you're still trying to decide what to do, here's a ginormous list of camps in the bay area. You can find everything from drama to sports to cooking camps in the list. It's got all the information you need: dates, hours, ages of kids allowed, whether after care is offered. Some may already be filled, so you'll probably have to make a few calls to find what you need. But at least this gives you a place to start.
Get busy and happy hunting!

P.S. This just in: If you sign up for the Lowry Park Zoo camps by Saturday, you can save 15 percent off the camp price.
