Let me start by saying, I can’t do this. I am taking off my Parks & Recreation, Leslie Knope, hat for a second and putting on my parent hat.
Lately, I have noticed a surge on the web. Images of carefully crafted Bento Box Lunches are haunting me. They look amazing, BUT I am a working parent, and boy, if this becomes the classroom norm, I am in big trouble. Packing lunch is already one extra step in the morning that can sometimes make or break
me our punctuality to school. Yes, I know this is not a daunting task for all parents, but anything with food involved, whether cooking it or assembling it, is my Achilles heel. Thankfully, those in my population have an option. Did you know about Camp Kaboom?
Camp Kaboom is an All Day Camp at Red Morton Community Center, from 8:00am to 5:00pm (post care from 5-6pm), with Field Trips, Swimming, Recreational Activities, Special Events, Arts, Crafts, Healthy Snacks, and… wait for it….LUNCH!!!! DAILY! Wake up, get dressed, and KABOOM! (Well, you ARE on your own for breakfast). Pretty great, right?
