Title: Overnight Summer Camp Tour


1
OVERNIGHT
SUMMER CAMP TOUR
2
Deciding on which of the hundreds of overnight
summer camps is best for your youngster is a big
decision.
3
From camp fees to activities and
camper-to-counselor ratio, theres a lot for you
and your future camper to consider, and one of
the best ways to find the best fit for your child
is to go on a few summer camp visits.
4
FIRST HAND
5
Ideally, youll be able to visit when camp is in
session. This will give you more than the
standard tour of facilities, fields, waterfront,
bunk houses and dining hall.
6
Its great to check out the layout of the place,
but wandering through when other campers are
there gives a far better feel for the overall
vibe of the camp.
7
Your youngster will get to meet kids his own age
who attend and get a taste of the summers
activities.
8
Many camps hold camp fairs to meet with
representatives and take a tour, while some hold
prospective camper sleepover weekends.
9
CAMP LADIES
10
If you find the whole decision a bit
overwhelming, you can seek out the assistance of
a camp consultant, a sort of recruiter who
provides services free to parents and is paid by
the camps themselves.
11
These camp ladies can help you sort through the
type of camp youre interested in, distance, fees
and the specific needs or interests of your child.
12
Life Changer
13
More than just the best sports facilities, canoes
and overnight camping trips, choosing the right
summer camp can actually be a life-changing
experience for your child.
14
Think about it this way When you send your kid
off to college, its for four years, while
returning summers at camp can span more than
twice that time.
15
Life-long friends and cherished memories form
during those magical summers just look at the
alumni sites and gatherings from summer camps!
Its like boarding school or college only more
fun!
16
Listen to Your Child
17
Go with your instincts and listen carefully to
your childs comments during or after a camp
visit.
18
After all, its your youngster who will be
summering there, not you! Get to know the staff a
little and ask whats special about each camp.
19
The Legacy Connection
20
For parents who attended sleepaway camp as a
child, the decision is often a no-brainer.
21
If you have an attachment to your childhood camp,
you may have brought your kids along with you to
reunions and they may already be excited about
attending.
22
Putting Your Mind At Ease
23
Many parents find that visiting camp with their
kids ahead of time eases a lot of that separation
anxiety (for you!) when kids are dropped off for
one or two months out in the wilderness.
24
Once youve met the director, the staff and some
of the kids, youll have a much better feel for
what the upcoming summer months would be like for
your little camper.
25
Ask as many questions as you want, and youll
find most camp personnel more than helpful in
addressing your concerns.
26
The Other Green Stuff
27
With some camp fees topping the price of college
tuition twenty years ago, youll want to get the
most bang and fun for your money ...
28
... and summer camp visits can give you a
first-hand look behind the glossy brochure and
website photos. Its only sensible to investigate
any possible investment!
29
