Picking The Best Camp
Q. How do you choose the best summer camp for your child?
A. Choosing a camp can be an extensive process filled with price and activity comparisons and the ever present “is my child ready” question. As a mom of past campers and a current camp director, I encourage parents to take some time for research and consider their kids’ point of view. Is there a new skill they want to develop or a specific area you want them to grow in? With a better understanding of your child’s hopes and expectations, you can narrow down the list of potential destinations. Consider the long-term effects camp will have on your child in areas such as independence and developing crucial life skills to choose a place they will thrive.
