Tip #10 -Guidelines in Choosing the Right Summer Opportunities for Your Child (the last tip!)

Top 10 topics to discuss when choosing the right summer opportunity for your child continues with tip# 10 (fun)

Choosing the right summer opportunity for your child is a process that includes evaluating enrollment options, program quality, cost, staff, safety, mission, individual camper needs, accreditation and friendship. And oh, let’s not forget FUN. How do you measure fun? 

Topic Tip #10

Fun- All summer programs should be anchored in a spectacularly FUN and memorable experience for your child. What special traditions does the program have? Special events?

In summary, the good news is that there are tons of diverse summer choices for your child. The bad news is that choosing a summer program can be overwhelming.

Being confident that you have chosen the right summer camp for your child can be a defining parenting moment. I know that no camp is not the right summer experience for every kid, nor can it accommodate them all; but it is my hope that all children have a true camp experience that is safe, fun, and memorable.

I hope that this top 10 becomes a resource tool for you. You should feel comfortable discussing each of these topics with the camp director and anything else on your mind, after all, you are entrusting your child to their care.
