KNOXMOMS.COM:SUMMERCAMPS

knoxnews.com | NEWS SENTINEL

Planning for summertime starts now BY ALI JAMES

Knoxmoms.com

Everyone in the family will be a happy camper thanks to our 2011 Knoxville News Sentinel/Knoxmoms. com Summer Camp Guide. Yet again this year, it is packed with summer camp options to suit all ages, budgets, schedules and, of course, interests. School may not be out for another couple of months, but it is not too early to start registering the kids for a summer

program. In fact, open enrollment has begun for many camps on a first-come, first-serve basis with some offering added incentives for early registration/ payment. The easy-to-use grid-style format of our annual guide is back and once again you will find summer camps listed alphabetically according to “Provider” name. Is your child interested in a particular type of camp? Simply scan the “type” column to find options. Other

essential information such as ages, cost, dates and contact information are also arranged in easy-to-browse columns. For more information about these camps and programs see our online directory at http://www. knoxmoms.com/summercamp. Online you can search according to keywords, types of camps and camp provider names, too. The programs listed in this year’s

guide are those that replied to a request for information about summer programs in East Tennessee. By publicizing them, we are not endorsing them. If you have any questions about a particular summer camp, please call the number listed for that program. They will always be your best source for further information. NOTETOSUMMERCAMPDIRECTORS:The News Sentinel and Knoxmoms.com will call for submissions for next year’s guide in February 2012.
