I just remembered the North Pointe Theatres had cheap movies during the week last summer. I don't think they advertised it very much. I am going to call this year for a schedule.

We really like the week-long day camps at the Terrace School of Music.

My boys enjoyed a day camp at the Dino Park, too, but since it was only one day, I don't know that I'll sink the money into it again. It was about the same price for one day as the whole week at Terrace.

Ohhh, great thread! I started a thread a while ago asking for reviews on the dinosaur park day camps. IIRC, it is 10am-4pm including lunch and snack (for the preschooler age). I think it was $45/non-members. So that's 6 hours for $45.

The terrace camps (age 3-5) are 1.5 hours a day for 4 days, costing $45. So still 6 hours.

ctrcar, have you done both? Would you recommend one over the other even though they are the same price for the same total time? TIA!

There is also the Ogden Youth Park program: http://www.ogdencity.com/index.php?m...ion.summerpark

My kids are too young for this, but it may benefit someone else...

It really is going to depend on the interests of your child and my kids had a blast at both but I personally liked the Terrace camps more than the Dino Day Camp and would chose one of theirs if I had to pick one over the other. Although the dino park had them do a couple of little craft/activity type of things, it seemed like the day was mostly a supervised visit. The Terrace camps pack a lot into their daily allotment of time. My boys did the Artful Music one together, for example, and each day learned a new music period and style of art and created something to go with it. There was even a parent presentation at the end. By having it stretch throughout the week, it felt more like "camp" to them and they looked forward to it each day. Also, the smaller time each day was the perfect amount to be able to drop them off and then run an errand or two before picking them up.

Thank you, thank you! I completely agree w/ what you said. I think we'll be doing the creepy critters one for my little entomologist.
