Choosing summer programming for your child can be difficult with all the choices available today. Summer camps can be especially challenging to navigate, with several options and different types of camp programs, it is important to know what to look for in a quality summer camp. And also, to figure out what type of program is right for your child.

When looking at summer camp programs it is important to take into account the following....

•What do you hope your child will gain from the camp experience?
•Think about your child’s interests. What are their favorite hobbies? Do they like sports? Would they benefit from an experiential program?
•What facilities does the camp have and how are they utilized for each age group?
•Is it a structured program or one that emphasizes a lot of free choice?
•Is the camp accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA)?
•Does this camp offer tours or open houses where you can meet with the staff?
