I guess it depends on your perspective. Both DH and I WOH, so there needs to be some sort of summer childcare. Nanny for the week: $480. Daycamp: $200-$500 per week (there are more expensive options, but these are "average"). Sleepaway camp we choose for part of the summer: $370 per week. So for us, actually less expensive than some other options. Certainly there are very very pricey camps out there. But there are also "reasonable" options if you are going to be spending money anyway.
