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.

When should I begin my search for sleep-away camp?
Many families begin their research one and a half years before their child will attend summer sleep away camp. Although it is not necessary to begin so far ahead, we do recommend this for families who plan to visit sleep away summer camps while they are in session. Most camps will provide tours for prospective families, by appointment, throughout the summer. These tours fill up quickly, so it is important for families to make appointments as soon as possible. There are many advantages to seeing a sleep away camp while it is in session. Touring summer camps while they are "in action" allows children and parents to get a "feel" for the camp, its sense of spirit and camaraderie, as well as the level of adult involvement and supervision. There are also advantages to securing your child’s enrollment a year in advance. Some summer camps do fill their allotted spaces early in the season, and many offer tuition incentives to those who enroll early. Rest assured that no matter when you begin your search, our expert guidance will assist you in finding the right summer camp for your child.

These summer camps can be "coed camps", "boys camps", "girls camps", or "brother-sister camps", where boys and girls have separate campuses and facilities. Specialty summer camps offer focused activities in a particular area. These include sports camps, fine arts camps, performing arts summer programs, academic and travel programs.
