It’ll be the end of term soon and the kiddos will be kicking around the house, inevitably looking for things to do. Unfortunately we can’t be around all the time to help keep them entertained, and staying glued to their 3DS isn’t a great long term solution, so why not think about summer camp? They’ll be able to make new friends from all over Singers and continue learning, which is always a huge plus in our books. Check out our faves below!
