Parents should look beyond glossy brochures and pretty website pictures when searching for summer camps. The safety, health, and satisfaction of children should be the camp’s top priority, and a great camp should be an enriching experience for your child.

When choosing a camp, parents need to use the same care and common sense they would use in evaluating a daycare program. Look for one that provides activities that are of interest to your child, matches their personality, and is appropriate for their age and skill level.
