Summer Camp FAQs

Sending kids to a summer camp is never easy for any parents. The joy of sending your child into the woods and the wild for summer fun is often bogged down by anxiety and worries over things like safety, health, counselors, etc. Some of the pertinent questions that nag all parents are “Whether I should send my child to camp? “Is my child ready for camp?” Can I afford it?” “What kind of summer camp should I send my child to? “Is overnight better than day camps?”

The trail of unending questions is often long enough to perplex any parent. That said, it’s impertinent for parents to learn about and be comfortable with their choice of camp. And the best way to do so is to gain all the knowledge there is to be gained about the whole camping experience and the camp you are about to send your kid to.
