"I'm bored, mom!"

The dreaded call of the summering child. It can be avoided with a summer camp, and there are a few of them to choose from in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana.

For instance, the "Above the Influence Summer Camp," offered by the Western Montana Addiction Services and Tobacco Free Ravalli, will be July 22-24. It will be at 209 North 10th in Hamilton, but includes field trips, sports, journals, arts and crafts even a movie or two. $25 is the cost and space is limited. Call (406) 532-9149.

That's not all, though. A fairly comprehensive list has been compiled by the Bitterroot Cares for Kids Network. Faylee Favara said that if anyone has a camp that's not listed, they should call 532-9149 and let 'em know.
