March Editor's Letter
Welcome, March! Longtime readers know it’s a month I love! Not only does March bring longer days and (hopefully) warmer temps, but it’s also when my mom and I both celebrate our birthdays. Throw in spring break, and it’s a full, fun month!
In addition, March is when summer camp planning shifts into high gear. Our KC Parent Camp Guide, is bursting with terrific camp options for kids all over Kansas City (and beyond!). From day camps to specialty camps to overnight camps, options are sure to appeal to everyone. I never attended overnight camp (I was a homebody as a child), but both of my girls do and they love it and look forward to it every year. Attending camp lets them try so many things they’d otherwise not be exposed to, make lifelong friends and learn to take care of themselves, all skills that will serve them well now and in the future. Sit down with our Camp Guide and your calendar and get started planning your best summer ever!
Every year for spring break we head to St. Louis, as that’s where my family is. This year, my older asked about taking a “real” spring break trip. So I did a little bit of research. Yeowza! I experienced some real sticker shock when I saw airline and hotel prices for the week of spring break. If you’re looking for someplace to take the family that won’t break the bank, check out Kristina Light’s article for budget-friendly ideas. And, if you’re staying in town over the break, our Kansas City calendar will keep you busy all week long! So many great activities from which to choose!
Happy spring and happy spring break, Kansas City!
