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

It Is Breathtakingly Beautiful!

Camp Jeanne d’Arc has provided me with a plethora of life skills I am forever thankful for. Not only can I credit some of my most memorable and fun childhood memories to this fantastic place, but also the access to great role models I still keep in touch with. The traditions and values of Camp Jeanne d’Arc make it a more meaningful experience than other various camps. The friends I have made at camp have given me an opportunity to understand and appreciate people from places I would no other way be connected to. It’s all a blur looking back on my six summers. I am thankful for the essential building blocks camp provided me, in which I apply to the rest of my life. Also, it is breathtakingly beautiful. I would love to send a child to camp JDA to carry on such sententious traditions.
