UPDATE: For many parents, summer day camp is their only option. School is out, but many parents still work, and they need an affordable place to send their kids.  

13 Action News looked into dozens of summer camps all across the valley. We found most camps are offered for right around $150 a week. Private organizations and specialty camps are more expensive, and could cost you about $500 a week.  

If you're looking for more affordable options, stick with city and county programs. Most of the camps we found were well under that $150 range.  

Clark County offers summer camp starting at just over $80 a week.  

Some camps also accept Urban League for lower-income families. You can find the application here

In addition, the Clark County School District is providing parents with a list of activities and resources to keep students buys and learning. 

Parents and students can visit ccsd.net/summer, a one-stop Web page with information on a variety of topics including summer classes, food service programs, FACES, Safekey partners, summer camps, summer safety, back-to-school fairs and even hiking trails in Clark County.
