Q. How can I help my child prepare for her first time at sleep away camp?
To prepare for a successful first experience, build the confidence that she can do it! Encourage her to know that she is capable of being in a new environment and things will be okay! And things will be more than okay: She will make friends, try something new, and grow as an individual! But the real answer, is that YOU should prepare YOURSELF for their first sleep away camp. It’s hard to let them go – we get that! An unsuccessful experience may come from the hesitations and worries you feel. This leads to her already planning for failure. So, get comfortable with us! Give your camp a call and or plan a visit. This will help you be a strong support for your future camper!
