Families using the Tips on Trips free camp referral service gain broad exposure to the variety of summer opportunities available. Tips on Trips provides personal consultations by phone to determine the needs of the family and then provide them with videos and brochures by mail. Tips on Trips can help the family compare summer programs, give references and, ultimately, find the program that suits each child. We guide a family through the selection process from beginning to end with follow-up evaluations on all summer experiences.
Mullen said, “Parents often make the mistake of choosing a program for their child based solely upon where their friend’s child is going. Unfortunately, that choice may not be the best fit for their child.” Why? One of the beauties of summer camp can be the chance for your child to step outside familiar paths and familiar roles, to broaden their experience of the world.
Lisa and her fellow camp advisors evaluate residential summer programs through interviews with camp directors, personal visits to programs in the summer, and feedback from recent participants. A telephone conversation with a knowledgeable camp advisor affords a breadth and depth of knowledge from first hand observations.
Tips on Trips is one of the oldest and largest, quality camp & summer program referral agencies in the country offering phone consultations and camp fairs world-wide, and all their camp advisory services are free to families.
