Whether this is your child's first summer camp experience or their 5th, they're likely in a new stage of childhood each year. They might have unique challenges or successes going on in their lives this year, and they're about to be the responsibility of another person for a week or more. What would you say to or hope for in their camp counselor?
In an effort to be the best parent I could be, I did some online research about parenting and thought I would share my findings with you. While all of this advice is as good as gold in my opinion, you should at no point take this post as proven or serious. We all need a little laughter in our lives and this is our effort to bring some joy to into yours.
You are looking into camp options for your child and you are wondering which option is the best. At Kwaddle, we work with oodles of providers that offer one or both of these options and we are pleased to pass that information onto you. Both day camps and sleep away camps have their own pros and cons and we thought it might be helpful if we broke things down a bit.
Get ready for Summer Camp!
You've done your research and now it's time to make sure your child has everything he or she needs for summer camp. Don't wait until the last minute to look over this list, though. You may need time to pick up a few things before you send your child off into the great outdoors. Keep in mind that this is a list for all traditional camps. Depending on the focus of the camp your child is attending, you may need additional equipment. For example, if your child is going to horse camp, he or she may need riding boots, a helmet, and jeans to wear while riding. Contact your summer camp if you need clear instructions about additional items to pack.
