While it's always great to have some family and downtime once the school year has ended, the kids always start getting a little rambunctious after a few weeks of being at home. If you’re searching for a fantastic way to give them some fun, while learning new things and meeting new friends…a Beaufort area summer camp may just be the perfect solution.
