In Washington State? Have a kid who wants to go to some sort of camp this summer?

The end of school is just under a month away now for Ethan, so I've been spending time looking at camp options for him for this summer.  Fortunately I recently received an email letting me know about a great resource for Washington State families (hopefully it will expand soon!) called FUNnerator. Here's the scoop!
Created by 2 Seattle Mom-preneurs, the idea behind FUNnerator ( is part comprehensive database, part family planner, part social network (Think Yelp! meets Expedia for busy parents). With its launch in Washington state, there are currently more than 1,200 camps and over 5,000 camp sessions to choose from and more added daily. If you’re a parent, you’re free to search, sign up and use the tools. Search by zip code, type of camp, or simply type in your favorite keywords and FUNnerator shares results, including price, available dates, ratings and reviews.
FUNnerator makes camp planning fun and easy this summer. Find awesome camps, bookmark them, share them with friends.

I've used the search a couple of times now. You can narrow down choices by age, cost, day/overnight camp and several other options.  The camps in the area that I was already aware of showed up (with cost and other helpful information) and some ones that I hadn't heard about showed up as well. I love this new site!

Disclosure: I received no product and no compensation for this post- just passing on some information!
