Paying For Summer Camp: Is Any Of It Deductible?

My son starts summer camp tomorrow. And this is what I have learned as a parent about summer camp: it's expensive. Super expensive.

Last week, I took all three kids to Dick's Sporting Goods to stock up on camp items: shin guards, mouth guards, cleats, shin guard covers (who knew?), new hockey stick... The list for all three was pretty long. Long enough that I had to put the shiny new Mizunos that caught my eye back on the shelf; they'll have to wait. This trip was all about stocking up on camping equipment for the kiddos. And it was insane.
