Dear Fellow Parent,
Summer gets here fast every year! If you’re like most parents that I know… you’re really busy and sometimes planning for the summer is tough.
The BIG Question??
“What to do with the kids this summer?”
Maybe you’ve been considering a “Summer Camp Program.” But are concerned about 2 things…
“Will it be worth it?” Because let’s face it, a lot of summer camps don’t live up to their promises. It’s sad they end up just “warehousing” kids for the summer!
And…2) “What are the qualifications of the people/ camp counselors that my child will be spending their entire summer with?”
Here’s the thing…
Some Summer Camps that just “warehouse” kids for the summer and simply “employ their counselors for the summer” may work great for “the majority.” But what if that’s not how you want your child to spend those important summer months??
Remember this…The Wrong Summer Camp Can Put Your Child at Risk!
Of course- there’s no shortage of options for you when it comes to summer camps. There are music camps, academic camps, daycares, sports camps and the list goes on. The major problem is that these camps lean too far to one side.
Some lean totally toward the academics which results in bored kids with a bunch of stored up energy and frustration. You know where they’re going to let that out right?? When they get home!
Some lean totally toward the sports and don’t challenge the kids mentally. This approach makes it harder when back to school time comes around!
Other camps are just glorified baby-sitters where overall leadership is lacking!
A few questions for you..
