When deciding which summer camps to trust with your children, be sure to do your research.
8 Essential Tips
To Selecting The Best-Qualified Summer Camps
Key #1 Do your homework.
Look beyond the “price is right” and impressive flyers and brochures. Do your homework by asking for references, verifying information, researching organizations by getting the facts. Look beyond social media.
Key #2 Ask lots of questions.
Ask questions first. Inquire staff qualifications/training, background checks and selection process, ask about camp schedules, activities, food preparations, transportation, emergency planning, camp feedback (complaints and praises), camp history, supervision, the organization’s history etc.
