A Camp for Every Child - The Perfect Fit, The Right Time Gauging Your Child's Readiness for Camp

Answering these questions will help you determine when your child is ready for camp.
  • What is your child's age? Children under age 7 may not adjust easily to being away from home. Consider the day camp experience to prepare them for future overnight camp.

  • How did your child become interested in camp? Does your child talk about camp and camp activities on a sustained basis? How much persuasion is necessary from you?

  • Has your child had positive overnight experiences away from home? Visiting relatives or friends? Were these separations easy or difficult?

  • What does your child expect to do at camp? Learning about the camp experience ahead of time allows you to create positive expectations.

  • Are you able to share consistent and positive messages about camp? Your confidence in a positive experience will be contagious.
