Summer may seem like a time for relaxation and fun, but it can be stressful for some parents. Most American schools have a 10- to 11- week summer vacation and only a quarter of American families have a parent at home during this time.
Working parents can't always afford to place their children in expensive programs or take nice vacations. Affordable summer camps and programs such as through Camp Joy and Salvation Army can be a solution for these families.
Joining us to talk about the opportunities these camps offer for lower-income families and how they help kids grow are leader of the Youth Camp Programs at Camp Joy, Joel Van Egbert; Business Development Director at Camp Joy, Kevin Hackman; and Corps Officer and Pastor at The Salvation Army, Captain Malcolm Daniels.
