Does it seem like the days are getting longer, but the hours are getting shorter?

Too much to do and never enough time to do it all?

The flexible schedule is one of many reasons families champion the Au Pair program, but summer can be a real challenge for host parents who are working full-time. Host families know that au pairs can work no more than 10 hours per day and 45 hours per week. Once kids are out of school, an au pair’s regulation hours may not be enough time to cover all of your childcare needs.

Day camps are a great way to fill in the gaps, and there are many options in the DC area. Below is a list of camps not too far from our part of town, including full and half-day options. At posting time, all camps still had some availability. If you know of others your kids have enjoyed, please share on our private Facebook group page. Let’s work together to find options for our cluster kiddos– and make it a great summer for everyone!
