So I am not a keeping up with the Jones person or else I wouldn't live where I live and drive what I drive. I alsotruggle with spending money on stuff I deem unworthy (it is an individual thing and I am not a spendthrift, nor frugal but I try to be cognizant of my spending).
That being said I got an email that "your DK2 has been taken off the wait-list for the sleepaway camp, please register by April 23rd, 2022 to hold your spot." The camp is a 1 week sleepaway camp and it's expensive. It's $1500 for the week not to mention getting there and back (although I may not have to do it since friends are going...)
That being said I don't put the kids in much camp because I am home and usually not working. We enjoy hanging out and travel a lot. Plan this year is hawaii for 2 weeks, Canada for 2 weeks (family wedding) and potentially a road trip up and down the west coast with friends? So we are busy. I signed my kiddos up for 1 week of girl scout camp because that's the one thing we do. I also signed up for a half day paddleboarding camp.
But back to the sleepaway camp I didn't sign up for initially because it's expensive. Realize only one of my kids is going so it's not like other friends whose spending $3000 - $4500 sending 2-3 kids so we are not parent vacationing solo. I still have my older one who won't go (autism). So I was like I could spend $3k on our vacation.
I don't know if this is something worth doing or completely ridiculous.
