April is here! That means your kids might be on spring break or will be soon.
You know what else it means?
Summer is just around the corner, it's time to start looking for camps.
Finding a great summer camp -- one that suits your child perfectly -- is an annual challenge for Calabasas parents. With so many options to consider, it's often overwhelming to find the best program.
What kind of camp should your choose? Who do you talk to? When should you sign up? Where do you even start?
While many parents start their camp search online -- which, by the way, is a perfectly fine strategy -- finding the your child's ideal program in this way also has its potential drawbacks.
For one thing, it can get awfully time-consuming (not to mention confusing) jumping from one website to another while trying to learn everything you can from each individual one. One mom we spoke to the other day told us she spent 6 hours (SIX HOURS!) viewing individual summer camp websites, and all she ended up with was a lot more confusion (and exhaustion!) than when she started.
There is a solution though.
Why not attend a summer Camp Fair -- an expo, if you will -- featuring all the most popular summer camps and programs under one roof?
If you're unfamiliar with Camp Fairs, they're pretty much just like a wedding expo, boat show, or other types of live expos or exhibits you're familiar with.
Attending a camp fair is a phenomenal opportunity to meet camp representatives in person from dozens of different programs all under one roof at the same time. It's like visiting a "one-stop-shop" to learn about all the best summer camps for you.
Even though you can find different Camp Fairs all over L.A. this time of year, the most convenient one you'll find is right here in your own backyard.
There's a Camp Fair in Calabasas this Sunday, April 7 from noon to 3:00 PM at A.C. Stelle Middle School in Calabasas. And it's free!
Attending this Sunday's Calabasas Camp Fair affords you an opportunity to interview camp counselors and directors from dozens of different programs, pick up free brochures, and learn about all the amazing day summer camps available to your kids this summer.
In fact, at the Calabasas Camp Fair on Sunday, over 35 different camps and programs will be on display.
You'll discover day camps, sleepaway camps, beach camps, robotics camps, music camps, sports camps, cooking camps, dance camps, acting camps, STEM and STEAM camps, academic camps, religious camps, and just about any other type of camp or program you could ever imagine. Yes, all of these and more will be at the Calabasas Camp Fair this Sunday.
Now there's just one more thing to note.
Many camp fairs take place inside school gyms, Multi-Purpose rooms, or other indoor locations with strict capacity limits. This Sunday's Camp Fair in Calabasas is no different. So even though it's free, you'll be wise to get advance tickets just in case the event sells out.
You can get more information about this Sunday's Calabasas Camp Fair and free event tickets here.
The thing you'll love the most about the April 7 L.A. Camp Fair in Calabasas is the wide variety of programs you can learn about and choose for your kids this summer. From horseback riding camps to sports camps and everything in between, you'll find a fantastic program that fits your child's interest without a doubt.
Speaking of sports camps, Royal Basketball School is a program any child interested in basketball should consider.
Every Summer, Royal Basketball School hosts a Summer Camp at De Toledo High School in West Hills. The Royal Basketball School has put together a curriculum that emphasizes learning the ins and outs of the game. Each day of the camp packs a full load of basketball, swimming, outdoor games, special prizes, and fun! You can register for up to 5 days/week.
Best thing about this program? Your child does not need to be the next Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant or LeBron James to participate. All they need is a willingness to learn, make new friends and have fun.

Many Camps and Programs Serving the Teenage Market Exhibiting at the L.A. Calabasas Summer Camp Fair
Parents of older kids, especially those with pre-teens and teenagers, often find themselves in a dilemma when trying to find suitable summer camp opportunities for their kids.
Typical 12, 13, or 14 years old kids often think they're "too cool" for camp, and they usually'd just rather stay home and play video games all day instead of participating in safe, fun and organized outdoor summer camp activities.
As a responsible parent, though, you'd rather your kids be outside participating in healthy and worthwhile activities with lots of other kids their age, and maybe you just don't feel comfortable letting your child stay home unsupervised all day while you and your spouse are at work.
