Ready for CAMP!Now that you have chosen the best summer camp for your child, it is time to prepare for a wonderful summer full of fun, new friends and exciting experiences. Whether this is your child's first time attending a summer camp or he or she is a seasoned veteran, preparation is important for a positive camp experience. To help your child have a successful time at camp this summer...

  • Consider arranging for a first-time camper to attend with a close friend. One method to combat potential homesickness is to come to camp with a buddy. If the buddy is close in age and signed up for the same program, they can room together in the same cabin. We have a great "Bring a Friend to Camp" offer for you as well!
  • It is FINE, and sometimes more fun, to have a "fresh start" by coming on your own. If your child is coming alone, assure them that the camp counselors will make every effort to help them adjust and make new friends! The first activities the counselors lead are get-acquainted activities. Through these activities, the counselors and campers get to know each other.
  • Don't buy a brand-new wardrobe. While one or two new items are fine, camp life can be a bit rough on clothing. Children, especially first-timers, will also find "old favorites" reassuring when away from home. Consider writing the name of your child in important clothes, especially for young campers. Review the Summer Camp Info with the packing list and what to bring. 
Be on the look-out for our next Summer Camp Prep tips on how to prevent the "H" word!
