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

Helping Young Ladies "Find Their Voice"

I sent both my daughters to camp Jeanne d’arc and they are successful happy people, after their mom and aunts had also attended. Each year I gave them an option of going virtually anywhere and they each never hesitated in returning. It is a rare find because it looks much the same as it did 50 years ago and is a throw back to the experience of the great Adirondack camps – with a true focus upon helping young ladies “find their voice”, develop friendships for life and be truly fearless people.
