Learn how a sleep away experience provides a positive opportunity for growth. Tips on Trips and Camps recommends the best ways to find information about quality summer programs that can change your child’s life.

Camp provides a positive opportunity for growth that should not be under-estimated. It can be an integral part of a child’s educational and social development. For the first time, they leave their homes and deal with campmates that may have different values or behaviors. They will learn to make choices for themselves and to negotiate and resolve conflict. They will learn how to deal with stress in a socially acceptable manner and to include, instead of exclude. They will learn to assess and differentiate between appropriate and inappropriate behavior and, ultimately, gain a stronger sense of self. Camp provides the backdrop for this personal growth in a safe and secure environment.
How do you find a summer program for your son or daughter that will successfully support these opportunities for positive development? Why not explore many options at once, by attending a camp fair.
