Here are some of the questions that may be relevant for asking when you are selecting the summer camps for the children you want sent out for camping.
Confirm with the camp if they offer before-care or aftercare services so as to ensure that if the camp schedule happens to be at a clash with your own programs you will not have inconveniences more so when you are sending your son or girl to a day camp. What activities are there at the camp? Be sure to have settled for the camp with the activities of an interest and fascination to your girl for with these you will have gotten them enjoying the treats at the camp.
The decision over a sleep away camp should e given when there has been a good consideration of the security policy of the camp and as such confirm by asking about such policies. Some camps have a no cell phone policy while at camp and as such ensure that you have a clarification on the ways your child may remain in contact with you while at the camp for any arising needs or issues. It is often a requirement with the day camps that they provide you with day snacks and always ensure that this is indeed provided.
You will as well need to pack a number of items for the child’s sleep away camp such as the clothes, toothbrush, toothpaste, combs hairbrush, bed linen and pillow, towels and many other items for toiletries.
