-Katha Cato, Director, Camp Henry, NYC
"To put our parents at ease, we always have a parent orientation meeting so parents are able to meet everyone on the team and get precise schedules of where their children will be at all hours of the day."
-Sarah Hutton, Communications Director, Camp Broadway in Manhattan
"We keep our camp sessions in small groups that are defined by key age brackets so children are always with peers and they won't be overwhelmed. We quickly get them involved in engaging activities that grab their attention and provide one-on-one time with instructors to ensure kids will not feel lost in the shuffle."
