How will I know when my child is ready for sleep away camp?

Most families consider sleep away summer camps for children 8 years and older.

However, age is not the only factor in determining when a child is ready for sleep away camp.

Consider your child’s level of interest and desire to explore this summer camp option.

Consider your child’s experiences away from home without you.

Has your child slept out at a friend’s house or spent a weekend away from home?

Always be positive and talk with your child about the benefits of going to sleep away camp.
