  1. So far our favorite camps has been with The Wisconsin Veterans Museum! My kiddo was lucky enough to experience the photojournalism camp at the museum when they offered it.

  2. We have done MSCR and Keva. One thing I’d like to see mentioned is if they offer inclusion for kids with special needs. I’m excited by all these options and am excited to look into them!

  3. Thinking about summer adventures and trying something new seems harder than just continuing on but for the sake of our mental health, it’s so important. Stay safe.
