Choosing a summer camp experience for a child is a big deal…. a really big deal. Camps provide some important lessons for children such as faith, fun, skill development, friends, independence and positive role models; parents want to make sure they are choosing a camp that will make it all happen for their child. It is important to know everything from how staff are hired to how a child will be kept both emotionally and physically safe. And so much more!
As a camp director and parent of five almost all grown up kiddos, I know the importance of feeling confident in choosing a summer camp. I know both sides well. My kids had camp experiences at CYO Camp and various other camps as they were growing up. I always did my homework when discerning camps for my kids and I am grateful for those who check out CYO Camp.
It can be hard to know where to start or to know the questions to ask. I advise families to make a list of the areas they are most worried about to help formulate questions. For example, if a child has a food allergy or other need, a parent will want to make sure the camp can support that child's needs. Camps should have well thought out answers for parents' concerns and if a parent doesn’t like an answer then maybe looking at a different camp is the answer. No matter how great a camp’s reviews are families will want to make sure the camp is the right camp for their child.
The following are ways families can check out CYO Camp:
