Default what is a summer camp considered to be?

Is a summer camp a special expense considered childcare (can be used as a childcare claim on taxes), an extraordinary expense, or neither and possible agreed to via a 50/50 split of cost (assuming both parent are working/school)?

Would the child be in daycare anyway? If yes then its considered daycare. Some camps cost less than daycare.

Its normally split as section 7.

You need to ask yourself if its worth the fight costs. If you were paying $200 for daycare that week and the camp is $200 then its realistic to consider it as section 7. You calculate it the same with the net cost used.

Only need childcare during summer as otherwise in school. It would be in replacement of daycare, and trying to fill other summer weeks with grandparents, parent vacation, etc.
