 Get a Tax Credit

If you’re registering a student under the age of 13 for camp this summer, you may be able to apply tuition paid toward the child and dependent care credit.

From the IRS website: “The cost of day camp can count as an expense towards the child and dependent care credit. Expenses for overnight camps do not qualify. The credit is generally 20% to 35% of non-reimbursed expenses; up to $3000 in expenses for one child and up to $6000 for two or more children. The actual credit is also based on your income.”
