Tips to Get Your Child Ready for Camp

Any trip away from home has the potential to be scary for a child; these “tips” may be helpful in getting your child ready for camp:

• Focus on the stories your child can tell you after camp. Talk to them about all the fun they will have and all the activities they’ll participate in. If you are excited for camp, they will be too!
• Let them know that there will be adults at camp who will watch over them and direct them through all of the many activities.
• Since parents are unable to visit camp during the week we encourage you to send mail to your child. Campers love to get mail (try to send these early in the week so that they arrive before the camper leaves camp). In your letters, encourage them to have fun! Email is also available for them to access in the main office.
• When your child comes home, they will have many fun adventures and experiences to share. Sit down and share these priceless moments with them.

Long Point Camp recognizes the fact that you are sending your greatest treasure to our camp! We want to make sure you’re comfortable sending them and knowing they are in good hands. Below are a few articles on how to make sure their week of camp is the best week they’ll ever have!
