4 Qualities to Look for in a Summer Camp, Piermont, New Hampshire

Months before the school year comes to an end, many parents begin to look for exciting activities to keep their children active during the summer months. Summer camp is a great choice for kids of many ages because they have the opportunity to explore their interests, whether they love sports, arts and crafts, or nature. How do you choose the right camp for your child? Camp Walt Whitman has welcomed New England (and beyond!) campers for generations, and they have a few tips that can help inform your decision.

Look for these four qualities when researching your child’s camp options.

A Health & Safety Plan

Parents often worry how safe their children will be when they're away from home. Look for a kids’ summer camp that has staff members who can deal with minor cuts and bruises. For added peace of mind, find out where your child can access professional medical care, such as emergency rooms and hospitals.

A Trustworthy Staff

A Sense of Community

For many children, sleepaway summer camp is their first time away from home. Counselors should take an active role in making the experience less intimidating. Choose a camp that makes children feel welcome as individuals and helps them find activities and social groups that meet their interests and needs.

A Wide Range of Activities

Summer camp encourages kids to explore their interests and discover new ones. Whether your child likes hiking and swimming or photography and science experiments, they'll have chances to play and learn all summer long.
