Bang for your buck activities?

Postby OnceHarmony on Mon Jun 03, 2013 12:58 pm

I'm looking for activites for DD for the summer (and other seasons also). I'm just wondering what activities you have put your kids in that you feel gave you the most value for your money

Swimming lessons for DD come to mind for me.

We aren't a sports family but always open to those of course.

Thanks

Pedalheads and Science Venture immediately come to mind.

Guides is so cheap. $100 a year for 2 hours a week and then away trips and camp skills. It is Sept-June only.

We do swimming in the summer and then the specialty camps.
Be a yardstick of quality. Some people aren't used to an environment where excellence is expected.
