If you’re like most folks, this could be a busy weekend – gifts to buy, family and friends to visit, and all the other activities that make the holidays so special.
But if you’re a parent of kids age 6 to 17, there’s something else you need to find time to do this weekend: Sit down with your kids and discuss their summer plans.
What? Summer plans…now? A week before Christmas?
You betcha. Because this is the last weekend of Digital Media Academy’s Holiday Savings Season special. It’s all over after Monday, Dec. 21, taking with it the year’s best deal on DMA summer tech-camp registrations.
SURPRISINGLY GOOD TIMING
If your kids are or may be planning to attend DMA’s celebrated tech-camp program, it’s really worth your while to consider registering now. For starters, there are exactly one hundred reasons – each of them dollars.
There are some important intangibles that also make now the prime time to save on tech camp. Here are all five top reasons why you should huddle the troops together for a quick chat about what your kids hope to achieve with their next summer vacation.
DISCOUNTS THAT ARE GRAND
No doubt, this is the biggest reason. Register by Dec. 21, and you’ll receive $100 off that camp’s registration fee. And there’s no limit on how many discounts a family can take. For those with multiple kids or super-ambitious children who take more than one camp, these savings can really add up.
IT’S REALLY THE PERFECT TIME TO TALK CAMP
Everybody’s home this weekend or out together shopping. Plus, in most cases, extended families haven’t arrived for their Christmas visits, so it’s a good time to call a huddle. Also, at a week out, the family Christmas budget usually isn’t totally shot yet. Add it up and this weekend looks nearly ideal.
PEAK COURSE SELECTION
We recently announced our Summer 2016 schedule and a full slate of exciting new tech courses, including cool courses in virtual reality and wearable tech. Selection is prime right now, making it the perfect time to lock in your kid’s choice of camp. Do it now so your child gets what they want.
BECAUSE KIDS NEED A PLAN OF ACTION…
As a parent, you know how summer works. If kids don’t have a clear plan on how they’re going to spend their vacation, the time can slip away from them. You want them to have fun, but wouldn’t it be great if it could also be landmark summer? Book their registration now and they’ll have a plan of action.
…AND BECAUSE MOMS NEED PEACE OF MIND
As a mom, you know how parenting works. You juggle competing priorities and it’s your job to find the most sensible solution. Once you book your kid’s summer learning adventure with DMA, you’re going to experience the best sense of relaxation, as you know you’ve laid the foundation for a super summer.
THERE! 105 REASONS TO REGISTER (+ 1 MORE BIG ONE)
There’s one more reason to register now for DMA tech camps, and this one really takes priority over all the rest: Because DMA is a wonderful way to illuminate your child’s creative passions and test your kid or teen’s true interest in those passions.
A week at DMA is important not only for how it can unlock a sense of creative discovery within your child. It’s also essential – especially these days – because of the information the experience will provide you as a parent.
Before you start thinking about college (with all its hefty expenses), wouldn’t it be a good idea to make sure of what your child’s interests? Plus, seeing how they react within a pre-collegiate setting will show you how they’re progressing as growing young adults.
Remember, put the conversation into motion this weekend. Bring it up and find out what your kids think!
Are they ready for the DMA adventure? Aren’t you?
