One spring as preschool was coming to a close, I thought, “What will my boys and I do all summer to keep busy and have fun?” Wanting to provide stimulating experiences without the expense of a formal program, I decided to start my own camp. Armed with a background in advertising and public relations, I was compelled to package the idea with a catchy name, a logo (note the "binoculars"), an itinerary, even a song! Over a power-lunch of burgers and milkshakes at a local restaurant, my boys and I decided we would name our venture Camp Cricket.
I wrote an article about how I went about creating this camp and other groups (including a winter afterschool club), and it is today's headline at Kidoinfo.com titled: You Really Can Do-it-Yourself: Forming Camps and Clubs.
