Every summer in America, more than 11 million children attend camp. At summer camp, kids gain independence, responsibility, and interpersonal skills. They are free to be themselves with peers while enjoying new experiences and activities. My husband, a Professional Camp Director with almost 20 years of summer camp experience, recently shared with me that a successful camp experience often depends upon choosing the right-fit camp for your child, then letting camp work it’s magic! I couldn’t help but ask him, “Is that all? Isn’t there more parents can do to help make camp awesome for their kids?”
