Running the summer-camp gauntlet Local parents offer suggestions, build technology for camp planning by Sam Sciolla

W

Alto with her husband and two kids in 2010 from Belmont, she experienced the challenges of camp planning anew. Not only did Chang have to learn about the local camp offerings, but she had to fill up her kids’ whole summers, as she was working full-time. Fortunately, not long before, she had embarked on a project with Shilpa Dalmia — a fellow mother and software veteran — to create a Yelp-like online community where parents could search for camps and provide feedback on their kids’ experiences. Chang and Dalmia had realized that bringing all this information together, and making it searchable, would be of great value to themselves and other parents. “This was an under-served area, technology-wise,” Chang said. The result of their efforts was ActivityHero, a website launched in 2012. Today, the website houses more than 4,000 listings for camps

hen sitting down to plan out their children’s summers, parents face a number of challenges and questions — both logistical and philosophical in nature. How will the kids get to and from camp? Do they have a full schedule booked, even in the sparser month of August? How does one know if this or that camp will be the right fit for them? Should the camps they attend be more about learning or fun? With registration beginning as early as February and continuing through June, the camp-planning journey can be a long and daunting one. However, it’s not one that parents have to endure alone, with plenty of other parents available to pool resources and share suggestions. And, as might be expected in Silicon Valley, one local parent put her technical expertise to work to simplify this laborious process. When Peggy Chang moved to Palo

and classes throughout the Bay Area, and more than 50,000 nationwide. With this free service, visitors can browse the listings by types of offerings (class, camp, overnight camp, etc.) and categories (academics, art,

outdoor, sports, etc.), and then filter results by location, date ranges, age groups and other variables. In addition to helping parents sift (continued on page 7)

through the abundance of camps out there, ActivityHero also promises to shave time off other aspects of camp planning. Last year, the company added a feature that allows parents to register quickly for camps through its website. Important information is saved from registration to registration, eliminating the need to type or write out the same details over and over. Chang described it as the “Common App” of camp planning. ActivityHero also has a planning calendar feature where children’s summer schedules can be posted and shared with other parents — so friends can sign up for the same session and guardians can coordinate transportation. “Parents spend hours in the course of the January through June time frame thinking about these camps,” Chang said, “and ActivityHero is just trying to make it easier for every step of the way.” The activity of users on the website provides evidence that many parents are planning summers out in advance. According to Chang, 40 percent of registrations completed on ActivityHero last year were made three or more months in advance. However, Chang also pointed out that 30 percent were made within 30 days of the camp start date. Edita Donnelly, a friend of Chang and a Palo Alto resident with three children ages 12 to 19, reminisced how parents in the late ‘90s would start lining up the night before — like it was a “rock concert” — to claim a spot for their kids in the city’s camps. She thinks that some of that rush and competition for spots has slackened over the years, possibly because of the profusion of camp opportunities and the ease of

learning about them online. “(Parents today) don’t know how lucky they are with something like ActivityHero and the Internet,” Donnelly said. In keeping with that trend of greater variety, Chang has observed how a new type of specialty or “homegrown” camp has emerged. She described these as often being led by individuals who run a small, less-publicized operation and do it for the love of a particular activity or subject. She has seen more of these businesses crop up on ActivityHero, where camps can be posted for free. Donnelly said her kids have participated in camps like this before, including a chocolate cooking camp called La Toque de Cindy operating out of a Palo Alto home (which Chang’s daughter also attended) and a fashion camp based in a garage in San Mateo. Other groups have been inspired to create camps of their own, too, such as members of Palo Alto High School’s speech and debate team, who offer a summer program for middle-schoolers. Despite her mission to put all these choices at parents’ fingertips through technology, Chang encouraged inquisitive parents to go beyond the promotional materials if they want to know more about the camp structure. A self-directed child might fare better in a camp with more open-ended activities, she suggested. “Call up the camp and have a conversation,” she said. “Sometimes you can’t get that sense from the website.” As far as what kinds of camps families tend to be choosing these days, Chang said that it varies widely, with some opting for the traditional outdoor camps and others going the more educational route, perhaps with a language-immersion program.

Young Palo Alto chess players, from left, Mihir Mirchandani, Matthew Bhattacharya, Cody West and Rishit Bhat, focus on a game of chess at the Bay Area Chess summer camp at Fairmeadow Elementary School in July 2013.

With her own kids, Chang usually tries to “find something that ... helps to combat the summer brain drain.” Donnelly said her objective when choosing camps is simply to have her kids try something new, hopefully with friends. “I think as a parent I’m just trying to keep them occupied,” she said. “I don’t have big educational goals.” However, if there’s any general observation to be made, Chang said it seems that parents want to reach some sort of a compromise between their children gaining knowledge and

being entertained. “If parents can do the cross-section between learning and fun, that’s probably the magic spot that families are looking for,” she said.
