It's hard managing your family schedule when both parents work full time; even more so if you're a single parent with a full-time job. By the time you get the school year running smoothly, it's already time to plan for summer. Arranging a full summer of child care is the annual task most moms dread. The lack of true full day options can be frustrating and make you feel like you're the only mom who has a normal 9-to-5 job.

Combining Half Day Camps

For more variety, you can often combine two half day camps at the same location. Include half day options in your search, and then look for "yes" under full day combo. Just be aware that it's often more expensive than a single full day camp.
