March has moved on which means that parents of school-aged children are furiously planning their kids’ summer itinerary. If you’re like me, finding a summer camp, even for a week or two, can be a beacon of light in the long tunnel of ‘family togetherness’. And, as Easter weekend comes and goes, the playground parents are making you feel more and more like you’re going to miss the boat on a great opportunity for your kids. In a panic, you careen home, pull out the laptop and start Googling…
But where should you look? And, if your child has never attended the camp, how can you judge whether it is the right fit? DON’T WORRY. Even in smaller communities, there are LOTS of options and most will have a spot for you to fill. Below are a few guidelines to follow when scouring the camp scene – this is intended for arts-based day camps (music, dance, drama, visual art, etc.) but most suggestions can transfer easily to sports-based or other camp options.
