Make Your Kids Happy Campers
Summer camp is a rite of passage for many kids, but choose the wrong one, and you'll hear about it for years to come. It's important to decide whether your child is ready for sleepaway camp or if day camp is the way to go. Kids as young as 6 years old can attend sleepaway camps - but should they? It's a judgment call on your part as a parent. Some kids as old as 10 aren't ready; it just depends on the child. If she's regularly spending the night away from home with friends or relatives, then she probably wouldn't have a problem with it. Be sure your child can read the camp schedule easily and can bathe herself as well. Staying at a camp away from home for a couple of weeks can bring out talents and problem-solving skills your child may not have known she had - a super confidence builder that lasts a long time.
