Those of you who have been reading Capital District Parent Pages for a while might remember that April is the month we put out our first of two summer camp themed issues. Every year we run a list in April and May of local camps that cater to such broad and varied interests as science, sports, music and more. And these aren’t just camps for the older kids. Included in our listings are a number of options for preschoolers, who are traditionally too young for the town-sponsored summer activities in the area.
This month, the list runs on pages 14-15 with a story about why summer camp is good for kids. In May, you can expect our camp listing to grow as we add to it, and look for it all summer online at www.cdparentpages.com.
Also in this issue, in recognition of April as Autism Awareness Month, British Nanny writer Sharon Cole shares her column with her daughter as they pen a pair
of heartfelt open letters to the autistic child and his or her family. You’ll find them on Page 12.
Speaking of heartfelt, columnist Jennifer Steuer writes of the fear she feels for the safety of her children every time they leave the house — a fear that has only intensified in the wake of recent school shootings. It is something that many parents can relate to. Read the latest Triple Threat on Page 10.
Finally, we at Capital District Parent Pages would like to thank those of you who stopped by our booth at the Kidz Expo last month to say hello. It is always great to meet with our readers and hear first-hand what you think about our magazine.
As always, thanks for reading. Check out our articles and resource listings at www.
