My oldest daughter went to overnight camp at age 6, my younger one is 7 and was supposed to go this summer but we had a huge storm and I kept her home, will try again next summer. I think it depends on the child.
I use meal planning to save money. That way I only buy groceries I need, I also will buy meat on sale and freeze it for another week’s meals.
We eat very little meat. Beans are such an awesome substitute and so yummy. I also meal plan and buy in bulk for pantry items.
