Homer P Jordan IV's answer
It really does depend on the type of camp that it is. If it's a childcare type of camp then it would not be extra curricular. However, it was a fun art camp it may be seen as extra curricular. It depends on if it is a child care expense, and we don't know the age of your child at this point. -Homer P. Jordan IV, Esq. 404-620-1558 HomerJordan.com
