Carolina Parent magazine is also a great source of camp information, as are other local year-round schools and their PTAs. Check with businesses near your home or work that cater to young people — karate or dance studios, for example. Also, camp providers will often add a session to their schedule if there's interest from a group of parents.
Camps may also be offered through DPS or by individual faculty members or sports coaches. Keep an eye on RHMS announcements to find out about those opportunities.
