Summer Days Camp Fair 2014
The Parents Education League of Los Angeles (PEL) is hosting their free “Summer Days” Camp Fair on Sunday, February 23rd from 1:00pm-4:00pm. More than 50 local summer camps will be represented at the event at the Stephen S. Wise School at 15500 Stephen S. Wise Drive, Los Angeles, CA 90077. This is the second Camp Fair of its kind, and is expected to draw hundreds of parents from throughout the Los Angeles area.
“This will be a great opportunity for parents to freely explore the many summer options available to them in Los Angeles,” says PEL President and mother of two, Desiree Lapin. “There are so many arts, academic, sports and enrichment opportunities to consider when planning the perfect summer for your kids. For example, a family may want to explore a traditional camp as well as an arts or tech program to round out the summer experience. New activities often lead to new interests and greater development.”
Lapin said the PEL has had a terrific response from Camp Directors who welcome an opportunity to help educate parents about their programs. The Camps represented are from 31 zip codes and differ substantially in their size and offerings. From academics to sports, arts to technology, fashion to surfing; there is something for every child. Lapin adds “Parents really get a clear perspective about summer activities when they visit the fair; and that’s what PEL is all about, parent education”
In addition to meeting camp directors and staff, there will be an opportunity for parents to pre-register for camps that typically fill up quickly. While it may seem early to begin planning that perfect summer, day camps are opening their registration in February and many fill up quickly. With anywhere from ten to twelve weeks of free time to plan for, parents have an opportunity at the fair to review the camp schedules and pricing in one place.
Los Angeles now joins other metropolitan areas such as San Francisco, Chicago, and New York where Camp Fairs are annual events.
