For a few years now, when we turned on the morning TV shows at my house, we heard, "It's a bird! It's a plane! It's Super Grover!" Well, friends, the kids aren't so little anymore. I'm no longer looking for preschool related TV programming and high quality child care and education programs. Nowadays, I find myself looking for educationally grounded summer enrichment programs that will help my child grow into all he or she can be. Without further adieu, allow me the privilege to introduce to you the world's #1 camp to help teens reach their full potential.

Being a parent is hard work.

It's often said that parenting is the hardest job out there. While I tend to think farming or other labor intensive jobs might not always be a bundle of fun, I do tend to agree with this statement.
