Summer will arrive before we know it, and that means it's time to start thinking about your kid's summer camp plans. Luckily, we're here to help, with the best expert advice and local resources on everything "camp."

We are your one-stop shop for camp concerns and questions. Are you worried about separation anxiety (either yours or your child's)? Want creative ideas for bringing the camp spirit indoors during the winter months? How about a camp packing list, questions to ask directors, or what qualities to look for in a camp for your child with special needs?

Summer camp season can also mean a dramatic shift in your childcare needs. What's a family on a budget, with a nanny they love, to do? Here's our advice on how, and when, to start talking with your childcare provider about changing summer schedules.

We also have advice for keeping your kids healthy and making smart eating choices at summer camp, how your kid can crack the camp cliques and make new friends, whether siblings should go to camp together or separately, and the pros and cons of bringing electronics to camp for the summer. One 12-year-old's story about his struggle with homesickness (spoiler: there's a happy ending!) will help you overcome your anxiety about sending the kids away. And we help answer the question: Is single sex camp right for your child?

Finally, here's a round-up of some of our best advice.
