According to new data from American Express, families will pay a pretty penny to keep their children busy this summer. 

The 2012 summer break is set to cost an average American family $600 dollars, and affluent families are expected to dish out nearly double that amount. 

The study looked at a random sample of about 2,000 adults. 

Most parents said they plan to spend a chunk of that money on trips to places like theme parks, but day camps are expected to be the biggest expense.
