January isn’t even over yet and already I have been seeing signs for summer camp sign-ups! Believe it or not, now is the time to start preparing for summer.  Summer camp can be a big puzzle to solve every year with the kids being out of school for 10 weeks. Parents need to start planning early to ensure enrollment, coordination with friends, and to make sure their children have a safe and fun alternative to school.

A big part of that puzzle is finding a perfect match to their child’s likes and needs.

How to Find the Right Summer Camp for Your Child

how to find the right summer camp for your child

1. Take your child’s personality into account. Are they competitive? Do they like to explore? Are they creative? A great resource is ActivityHero, where you can search for camps using criteria such as location, price and time frame to narrow down your choices

2. Ask them. No brainer. Ask your child what type of summer camp activities they would like to participate in. Make sure you take their opinions into consideration.

3. Consider the commute. If your child is not ready for sleep over camp, the daily commute to and from camp needs to be taken into consideration. This is where planning carpools with friends and neighbors can come in handy.

4. Expectations. What are your {and your child’s} expectations of summer camp? Decide what’s important to you before searching for a camp. How to find a summer camp

  1. I love the graphic! Another consideration is the cost of the camp. If your child wants out of an expensive camp, it might not be the best choice until they’re a little older and understand the value of sticking something difficult out.
