There are still a few
sessions left for our summer 2016 camp season! We know its stressful to try and cram everything in at the last minute! Stress can pile up easily during this time. From last minute packing to anxiety about leaving home, we have some tips for you to prepare your child for our summer camp near North Carolina.
- Living on their own. – Speak with your son or daughter about living at summer camp and taking care of themselves while away at summer camp. Obviously our amazing summer camp staff will constantly supervise campers, but it probably won’t feel the same without a parent being there. Talk about good hygiene and the importance of taking care of themselves. In our summer camp cabins, campers will be living with each other in a smaller space. Go over what it means to be a good roommate and to respect other people.
- Summer camp will be over before you know it. – The only downside about camp, is feeling homesick at summer camp. We can’t guarantee that your child won’t feel homesick, but we can do our best to help them adjust to a typical day at camp and camp life. With one-week sessions, summer camp will be over before you know it and we want campers to have the most fun possible. We have found that most campers get over feelings of homesickness on the first or second day of camp and go on to have a great time at summer camp.
- Start packing early.- One of the top tips we receive from parents is to start packing about a month early. Hopefully, you have begun packing for summer camp by now, but if not, you can read our tips for packing for summer camp. In short, follow the summer camp packing list, label everything, and keep valuable items at home. Any electronic that can connect to WiFi is restricted at our summer camp.
