children online1 150x150 How to Save Money on Summer CampIt seems like there’s a summer camp for almost any age and interest, but the cost of summer camp can be expensive. With some simple strategies from WalletPop, parents can save money while finding just the right camp experience for their children.

WalletPop lists these easy ways to cut costs for summer camp:

  • Child and Dependent Care Credit on your tax return. There are some limitations– for example, the credit covers only day camps, not sleep-away camps — so consult the IRS or your tax preparer.
  • Scholarships — The American Camp Association and local community groups offer scholarships, sometimes called camperships.
  • Discounts — Many camps offer discounts of some kind, for example, a discount for more than one child from a family.
