Tips For Homeschooling Inexpensively

Camping Resources, Tips and Links!

One of my most treasured memories is a skiing trip I took one winter, with my Girl Scout Troup to Grayling, Michigan. The girls all became great friends, perhaps some lasted a life-time. These are the things we remember from our childhood.

One of the greatest gifts we can give to our children is fond memories, new friends and all the fun of summer camp. Welcome to the Budget Home$chool Camping section! Whether you need to find a summer camp for the kids, a daycamp just during working hours, unique camping recipes or camping ideas, you are certain to find something of interest here.

If camping isn't really your thing, don't worry, we've even included links to suggestions on how to camp, without the whole bug crawling camping experience (you know what I mean; lack of showers, lumpy sleeping bags, etc.).

You will find both popular and obscure camping information. Many of the camping programs found below and on our Summer Camp page page offer scholarship programs for those who are unable to attend due to distress with their personal finance.
