What can I do to ensure that my child has a successful summer experience?
While you are not at camp with your child, you do play a huge role in the success of your child’s summer. To follow are a list of things that we think you can do to help them have a more positive summer experience:
- Before your child goes to camp, talk to them about the camp rules and stress the importance of following them. If your child knows that you are aware of, and support, the camp’s rules, they are more likely to follow them.
- Remind your child that the people at camp are there to ensure that they have a wonderful summer experience. If anyone, staff or camper, is bothering them in any way they should immediately find a staff member they trust (preferably their Unit Head) and articulate their concerns.
- Remind your children that they are at camp to have a good time and that they should embrace every opportunity to the fullest!
