Parents 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

The directors were literally my parents away from home

Everyone was loving and caring and the directors were literally my parents away from home…they were always involved in the activities and it showed that they cared that everyone was comfortable and happy.  It was not one of those camps were the directors only perform administrative work, these directors were hands-on and they actually made it a point to know each and every girl…..
