I attended YMCA camp every summer as a kid, learned to make friendship bracelets, do a cannonball and play capture the flag. We had visits from the 4H Lady and sang songs inside the cabin when it rained. We picked up trash after lunch and made up dance routines to songs we taped from Laser 104.1 FM. We "went out" with boys and had our hearts broken for the first time. I want to go to camp again!! Community Services for Children recently launched LehighValleyCamps.com, which provides a free directory of summer camps in the Lehigh Valley. The site also offers parent tips for choosing camps, keeping kids safe, and more. Camp listing is free and use of the website is also free. Camps will be added continuously, so parents should keep checking the site for new camps.
