Summer Camps 2014

School's out for the summer... Now what?  The lazy, hazy days of summer require some additional planning for parents of school-age children.

Work Place Options, part of GVSU's employee assistance service, is able to help you find a summer day care program or camp for your child. Simply call 1-800-788-8630. Work Place Options will do a tailored search for summer care and save you a great deal of time!

GVSU Health & Wellness also has some suggestions and ideas on different camps from all over Michigan, and summer daycare programs for your children!
