“All the world is a laboratory to the inquiring mind.” (Martin H. Fischer)Cover

I clearly remember one day when I was about 10 years old, being dropped off for a single-day camp near my elementary school. I was excited and nervous to see what was in store, and I spent the day playing at a playground and doing simple crafts. Nothing fancy at all. But many years later I still remember the feeling of anticipation, and the experience of meeting new kids and being a part of something that felt special and unique.

Camps were not as common then as they are now, and were mostly supervised play in a school or community playspace. Now you can find a day camp for pretty much any sport, topic, or activity, and we love searching them out for you. In this issue, we’ve got a long list of day camps of all kinds, and the list continues online too!

Also in this issue we talk about the benefits of Early Childhood Education, and provide you with a lot of options to help you find the perfect place for your preschooler.

As many schools are forced to reduce their arts programs, thankfully the opportunities for kids and the arts in out-of-school programs have exploded. Visual and performing arts classes are available in studios in every community and neighbourhood. We ask the question if dance is a sport… or an art. And we explore boys in dance too. We also talk about what makes art so important to a child’s development, and it’s not just to become the next prima ballerina or a-list actor.

Whether it’s find the perfect camp for your child, or selecting the family vacation, we’re giving you lots here to read and think about. Summer is just around the corner and we’re wishing you happy planning!
