Now I got nothing for them to do, and they can't stay home alone all day for a couple different reasons. Anyone got any saviour type tips to help me come up with a plan?

I have about three weeks to get something in place.
Send them to a summer camp. Of course make sure it's something that interests them, even though the odds are they won't like the idea of camp. If you're on a budget though I have no idea. Any ideas to keep your kids occupied over the summer will obviously cost money since staying home is out.

Yeah summer camps work, but only for a week or two, don't want to really send them on long ones, as I only get the summer time to spend with them. (money also is a bit of an issue, but not so much as trying to mix the time with them and a keeping them reasonably occupied.) Like I said, in the past several options have always come available, but this year I have a lot less flexibility and fewer personal contacts that are able to help...

The wife and I also went to Tybee Island in SC 7 yrs back and had a good time. It seemed the island was in the process of transforming form a little town to a resort area. You would have a $500,000 house on the water beside a 1950's shack.

Yeah that's a tough one then. I wish I had more ideas but I don't. Too young for a summer job, don't want them spending their time at home, can't go to work with you, don't want a summer camp, honestly idk. Short of letting them stay with a relative for the summer (which it sounds like you don't want to do because summer is the only time you really get to see them) I got nothing. GL figuring that out.

Family always has helped, and may some this summer. Found a UMBC weekly camp that runs multiple one week sessions, and that is near my work, so it may be an option for a bulk solution, with flexibility within specific weeks for my time with them. More so worried about the 12 yo girl, cause it's kinda boring without any similar aged girl friends, and this UMBC one has a big swim portion which she loves. My hope is that I can get her into a majority of the weeks, and then figure out some other things for my 13 yo boy, who as we all know would be happy sitting in front of the PS3 for 90% of any given day!

Here all the locations. You said earlier UMBC would work so maybe the Catonsville Y would be a good idea.

Re: Summer Vacation Plans and Stories

How about Emerald Isle? It not as developed as the Outer Banks and its not too far of a drive.

I have a customer who's parents have a place in Emerald Isle and he says its a very quiet beach. Very small twon type of place with not alot to do other then go to the beach and out to eat to the few resturants they have. Sounds like what you might be looking for.
