With the plethora of summer camps in America, it can be difficult to determine what type of camp or program your child will enjoy. Many parents start with the geographical, determining a location that is close enough to drive in a few hours. Others choose to start with a specific type of program, sports or creative arts for example, and find camps that have the best facilities for these activities. Even with these categories, finding the right camp can be a daunting task.

Tips for Gathering Information

The good news, in these modern times, is that most camps can be found on the Internet. Many have their own websites and even those that do not are generally listed in online directories. The Internet makes it possible for parents to search by any number of specifications and create a list of camps that their child may enjoy.

Even with the information superhighway, one of the best ways to choose a summer camp is through word-of-mouth and personal recommendation. If a summer camp program is top-notch, chances are it will have a lot of return campers and counselors. Start by asking friends and families if they have any summer camp recommendations. After a list of names is compiled, a quick search on the Internet can reveal camp specifics, costs, location and other pertinent details.

Above all, it is important that parents feel comfortable with whatever summer camp they choose to enroll their child at. Camp can often be a large financial undertaking, so it is best to know all the facts before the start of the summer. Most camp directors work year-round and can be easily contacted by email or phone. They will be happy to provide any further information about their camp program and assure parents of the type of experience their child will have.
