In trying to find the right summer camp for your kid, remember these three keys:

  1. Offerings – Look to see which each camp has to offer. For example, are you in search of a specialty camp for your child? You may be searching for one that focuses on sports. You might want one where technology is the key focus. How about one with a focus on arts and crafts? No matter what you are leaning to, be sure to know the activities your child could have exposure to. If you want a well-rounded camp with different activities, that should not be hard to find. In choosing such a camp, your child will have access to a myriad of things to do. Then again, some parents want their child to zero in on one activity so that they can get better at it.
  2. Location – While you do not want your child a block away at camp, sending them far off is not going to be ideal either. That said spend some time looking at a camp’s location and how it could or could not work for your child. If this is your child’s first time away from home, they may not like the idea of going too far. If they are older and have done camp before, being further away from home may not be all that big of a deal to them. Given you know your child better than anyone, you should find which camp location best suits them. It is also a good idea to locate a camp that is not too far from medical facilities. Although the thought of your child getting injured or becoming ill is hard, don’t overlook it.
  3. Counselors – Last, the right counselors makes all the difference in having a great camp. Do some research ahead of time to find out about a particular camp’s counselors. When your child has the right people looking after him or her, it can be a camp they will want to go back to again. It is also important that a camp has enough counselors on hand so the ratio of instructors to kids is proper.

As you look for a summer camp for your child, don’t rush into a decision.

By taking time to see which camp best suits your child’s needs, you will more times than not end up making the right call.

In keeping your kid active during summer, the idea of sending the camp is more times than not a winner.

So, will your child be heading off to camp when summer rolls around again?
