Parent’s Guide

Parent’s Guide to Overnight Camps for Kids

We know that as a parent, it can be overwhelming sending your children away to camp feeling like you don’t know exactly what they’ll need, what they’ll be doing every day, how you’ll communicate with them… etc. Overnight camps for kids can be really intimidating, especially if it’s the first year your child has attended one! Lucky for you, we are great at communicating with our parents! We understand that sometimes the camp experience is harder for the parents than for the kids. We are here to help!

We have compiled our “Parents Guide to Overnight Camps for Kids” to address any questions or concerns you may have while either deciding whether or not to sign your daughter up for camp, or preparing for her departure. This guide is specific to 2019 activities so you can see exactly what will be going on during each fun-filled day at camp this year, and begin preparing your daughter for all the excitement to come!

TESTIMONIALS

Camp Jeanne d’Arc Truly Opened My Eyes

There is so much I could write about camp such as how delicious the food is, or the variety of activities, but the best part is the people. Through camp I have met so many new people and made many best friends from all over the world. They are basically my second family. Camp Jeanne d’Arc truly opened my eyes. Camp has also taught me leadership, respect, and to be me. I am so much more comfortable in my own skin because of camp and carry things I learned at camp into the real world.
