‘Tis the season to start thinking about summer camps and there are tons of options in this area! As EveryHome agent Jen Kuznits explains, summer camps are a great place for kids to experience activities like hiking, swimming, and camping skills. Plus, they are a great opportunity to develop character-building skills, self confidence, leadership, and team building skills.
Summer camp is a great opportunity for new friendships that can last a lifetime. So how do you pick a camp that is right for your family?
Here are some things to consider: Are you looking for a day camp, or overnight camp? Is your child into arts and crafts, sports, or how about technology? Or perhaps you would like to send your child to a faith-based summer camp? Price can also be a big factor! There are some camps that offer scholarships or discounts, while other camps are geared for families who may not be able to afford traditional camps.
Just remember, that choosing a camp is an individual family choice. Everyone has an opinion as to which one is best, so go with your gut, and not what your friends and neighbors might say. Every child is different, and only you know what’s best for yours! An online directory for summer camps are a great place to start.
