For many Chester County residents, summer camp can put a dent in the wallet, especially when most of us register our kids between February – March, when we are still paying for pre-school or other grade-school activities. We feel the pressure of signing up early to either get that discount or the fear of the program filling up.
For working parents, it can be a nightmare. There isn’t a lot of choices for full-day summer camp that doesn’t cost an arm and a leg.
At Limelight Performing Arts Center, they understand this pain. They offer ½ day or full day week-long camp programs all summer and you can register at any time. The cost for a week-long program from 9am-3pm is roughly a little over $11 per hour per kid, which in most cases, is cheaper than childcare all summer – with early drop-off and late pick-up available.
But, did you know that you may qualify for a tax credit if you work through the Child & Dependent Care Credit? For children and dependents under 13 years old, you can qualify for up to $3,000 for one, $6,000 for two for summer day camp programs. Summer camp tax credit may not help you pay those tuition fees now, but it sure does help when you file your taxes!
There are more benefits and rewards than just qualifying for the tax credit. We may not be thinking about our kids jumping off the walls now as we inch closer to the end of the school year. Right now we are thinking about that much needed break from homework, what paperwork we forgot to sign, if the independent reading book was filled out or if we sent the check in for the end-of-year class field trips. But, by July, you are going to be looking for every and any place to drop off the kiddos for some much needed you-time and a place for your kids to socialize and burn some energy – use their brains and imaginations – because, let’s face it, you’re starting to feel guilty about that screen time that they will be participating in by mid-summer.
That’s where Limelight Performing Arts Center comes in. From 9am to 3pm every day, your kids will be participating in theatre. There is no better place to use one’s imagination than on stage. Not only will they be exploring their imaginations, but they will work on their socialization. If you have a child that is a little shy, being at home throughout the summer will only maximize this. Drama activities also improves reading comprehension, and both verbal and non-verbal communication skills – which will support your children in being better students in the upcoming school-year.
Limelight’s summer theatre camp support children between the ages of 5 and 16. Early drop-off and late pick up is available too at an additional fee. Each child will receive a camp t-shirt when registering. Are you ready for your child to “Step Into The Limelight”?
