Post-pandemic, demand for summer camps has spiked

Demand for summer camps has spiked since the pandemic, and in many cases, they can be expensive.

The American Camp Association reports the average cost of summer camp can add up to about $90 a day with overnight camp costing about $175 a day.

There are more than 15,000 camps across the country, the association says, with more than 26 million kids signing up.

Some parents started applying back in the winter and say the process wasn’t easy.

At the Children’s Museum of Pittsburgh, there are still some openings for kids ages 9-13. More information can be found at https://pittsburghkids.org/.
