School is out for the summer for most of Greater Houston, and many kids will attend summer day camps in the coming weeks and months. That’s nothing new.

Since 2003, she’s curated a printed – and now online – guide to Houston-area day camps called The Summer Book.

She tells Michael Hagerty about the changes she’s seen in day camps over the years and what parents can do to make sure their child gets the most out of their experience.
