What can I do with my 13 year old daughter while I'm at work all day during the summer? Additional difficulties inside...

My daughter spends half of the week at her dad's house and half at mine, all of us (her father, step-father and myself) work full time. We all feel that 13 is still a little too young to be left home without supervision for 8+ hours a day. Plus, all she will want to do is stay inside all day and watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer and play videogames. Her dad has made plans for the days that she's at his house but I'm at a loss for what to do on the two days a week that I need to cover. All of the summer camps I've found don't offer any part-time options and they are all $200+ a week which isn't really feasible. My husband and I work approximately a half hour away from home so going home during our lunch hour and checking in on things isn't do-able. Help!
