We’re Baaaack

When children attend a sleep away camp, they may be leaving home for a few days, but what comes back with them is where the real good stuff lies. So what can you expect when your kids get back?

Get Ready for Camp!

To help ensure a successful camp experience, start working on a few habits at home now so that when your children are on their own at camp, they can handle these situations with ease!

The Camp Next Door: Day Camp

Day camp, as the name implies, typically consist of a series of consecutive days where the child is away during the daytime hours.

10 Benefits of Summer Camp

As 14 million children across the nation head off to day and overnight camps this summer, they’ll return home with more than just cute camp t-shirts. The summer camp experience can give kids an advantage in school and in life.

Ready for Overnight Camp?

Summer camp can be a lot of fun, especially if you are prepared! Involve your child in the packing process and begin packing several weeks in advance to avoid last minute shopping trips. Although it will probably take a while, label all items going to camp with your child’s name. Certainly, your child’s camp will send a packing list, but you can expect some of the following essentials to be on it.

Spiritual Growth at Camp

Kids grow overnight, and we do our best to facilitate what goes into their bodies. On top of that, we have to make sure they stay busy. Soccer games, piano lessons and, no, it doesn’t just stop because school’s out. Summer camp can provide a great opportunity to learn a new skill, make friends, have tons of fun—and also be a great place to grow your child spiritually.

The Bottom Line About Camp Costs

The good news for parents is that there is a camp for just about every budget. While fees to attend camp vary, they can range from only $75 to more than $650 per week for American Camp Association-accredited resident and day camps.

Lessons Learned at Camp

With summer just around the corner, many families in the metro are in the process of choosing a summer camp. Camp can be an exciting and rewarding part of childhood that builds lifelong skills and memories. “I still have great memories of my time at dance camp,” Rachel Hawks, Olathe mom, says. “I am excited for my daughter to start that same journey.”
