If you're like me, you want to enroll your child in day camp this summer, but it's only February, and you're quite frankly just focused on school lunch and afterschool activities and everything else going on in the here and now. And meanwhile, you're learning that camps have started their open houses in January and are filling up and all of your kids' friends are already enrolled for the summer. Worry not!
