What is appropriate trampoline etiquette with my kids?

What Summer camps do you recommend?
The final bell of the school year is approaching. Don’t have any camps lined up? Try these alternative solutions:

3. Tots on a Train: A more adventurous daytime activity can be found just across the tracks. Kids have fun hiding in train cars for hours.
4. Minis in the Mall: Kids earn points by asking strangers “Are you my mommy?”
