Why It Pays to Start Looking for Summer Camps Now, Piermont, New Hampshire

As children get back into the swing of the school year, summer break has become a distant memory. Before you know it, creating a plan for their next summer will become a top priority again. Rather than scrambling around at the end of the school year, now is a good time to register for summer camp. Here is a helpful guide on the benefits of getting an early start and what features to look for.


Starting early gives you access to a wider selection of different camps. Outdoor getaways, technology, and sleepaway summer camps typically fill up the quickest. Your child will have their pick of courses. Registering early also affords you peace of mind, as you won’t have to worry about relying on family members or other child care alternatives while you’re at work during the summer.

Camp Features to Look For

summer campEach child is unique, so certain summer camps may be more accommodating to their interests. Seek out camps that will provide activities your child may enjoy. For instance, performing arts, science, and outdoor or water sports might be appealing. Talk to your child about their preferences and seek out a happy medium.

You’ll want to ensure your kids are in a safe environment. Ask if counselors are trained and certified in CPR and first aid administration. Summer camp coordinators will gladly provide information on whether all counselors receive criminal and other background checks. If your child has a physical or mental disability, ask if there are counselors who are specifically trained to work with them.


With everything going on with school, work, and life, it might be hard to think about next year’s summer camp plans. Since 1948, Camp Walt Whitman has provided amazing and memorable camp experiences for generations of kids from the New England region. With an array of camp options, experienced staff and counselors and beautiful settings, children will value their time away. Register now by visiting the website. Should you have any questions, call (800) 657-8282 and a friendly representative will gladly answer them.
