Plan for Camp

Start preparing yourself and your child now for next summer's life changing experience known as summer camp! Getting a head start will save you time and money in the long run.

  • Get on Camp Mailing Lists
  • Seek Recommendations from Friends

References, references, references. 
Get several from parents of repeat campers. Make contact with people who can describe their experiences with the camp, and why they'd recommend the location. Also, find out from the camp what the camper and counselor return rates are.

Secure Application Deadlines
Camps tend to fill up quickly - so secure the spot for your child as soon as possible!

Review Camp Prospects with Your Child
Include your child in the decision.  It's important for parents to make an effort to understand what their child wants and why.

Be sure to check out our archives for plenty of helpful articles to get you started.
