What we are: First and foremost, SA Busy Kids is more than just events to keep your kids busy. It’s all about activities that are enriching, educational and fun. We try to find the things that you might not have found otherwise, uncover the events that mainstream media overlooks.
Who we are: We are all local parents who love to find interesting things to do and fascinating places to explore. We love to feed our passions and the passions of our kids – whether it’s a day trip, a soccer game or a fossil hunt. SA Busy Kids was started by San Antonio mom and writer Debi Pfitzenmaier who was told by her husband to go find a hobby. (Can you say: overachiever?) In her day job, she is a media relations pro and consultant.
What we cover: If it has to do with science, technology, math, nature, the arts or it’s free…we’re likely all over it. We also review movies and books and just really cool stuff that peaks our interest. We stay away from advertorial content or stuff that just reeks of commercialized lameness.
Important stuff about the site that makes us different:
- Camps, activities and products are listed here because they are things we think are of interest to our readers. Not because they paid us anything to be here.
- There are times when items have been provided to to us free of charge for review or participation, or our writers have been sponsored to attend events. These relationships (as well as any conflict of interest relationships) are clearly identified and fully disclosed on each blog post related to the item or activity. Regardless of these relationships, the views and opinions expressed on this blog are purely the writers’ opinions. We only endorse products and services in which we believe, based on our personal experience with the produce or service. Any product claim, statistic, quote or other representation should be verified with the manufacturer or provider.
- People are strongly encouraged to post their own experiences with these products, services, camps and activities. What makes community is engaging with each other, supporting neighbors and sharing wisdom.
- SA Busy Kids does not have a quality control program that analyzes each camp or activity for quality, safety and educational wherewithal. That’s a nice way to say we make no guarantees and assume no responsibility. Do your own research – check things out – and make sure you are comfortable with your choices. Ask the right questions. And if you aren’t sure what those are, check out this blog post on the subject.
This is a continuing work in progress. Email me to let me know what you think and how we can make this work best for you.
Have a sunny day!
