Sanders Summer Camp

Every summer we have a summer theme at our house.  When my kids were little our themes were more elaborate (scroll down in the family section if you want to see some of our past themes), but now it’s more inspiration and ideas to make your summer more rich and meaningful.  Here are the last two summer themes that we have done.  Maybe it will give you some new ideas as school ends and the summer months begin.
