Are you ready for your child to go to summer camp?
For parents who are anxious about sending kids to summer camp, remember that the cost of a good camp covers more than the arts and crafts. It includes a team of professionals and counselors committed to fostering social learning in your child.
Summer camp is that rare situation where your child engages with a large community of peers and learns how to interact socially in a less-structured environment than school. This is a time for him to actively make decisions for himself and develop a sense of self-reliance. Though you may be concerned and wish to intervene, an attitude of “back-up” supportiveness will give your child room to take ownership over the experience himself.
