As the sun shines brightly through a summer like no other, camps have much to offer now and this Fall. With August underway, camps are out in front with a myriad of offerings designed to meet the ever-changing needs of families attempting to make optimal decisions in a COVID world.
Camps are working hard to meet families where they are right now. Whether your summer has been extended due to pushed back school start dates or you are contemplating the best environment for your kids’ success in ‘school’ this Fall, you might want to have a look at what camps can offer.
TOURS & NEXT SUMMER:
With many camps not running traditional programming this summer, directors are still touring prospective families both in person at camp and/or virtually. If you are interested in exploring for summer 2021, now is a smart time to see if your family can fit in that August or September camp visit. In addition, many camps that are traditionally full season are going to be offering shorter options for first-time campers.
FAMILY FALL DAYS:
This summer, Family Camp has been a popular breath of fresh air! Several camps are offering Family Days this Fall! Consider taking advantage of wonderful ‘campy’ activities that can be enjoyed by all ages come the Fall season.
SCHOOL AT CAMP:
While this school year will be anything but typical, both camps and parents are already getting creative together. Modeling after several camps that did successfully open and proved it could be done this summer, select camps are being creative and offering a ‘school’ at camp option that combines virtual learning and camp activities.
Now more than ever, all of us need to be flexible. We need to juggle. We need to be creative and open-minded as we embrace a positive path forward together. If you may be interested in learning more about what camp can offer your family, please reach out to any of us on the TIPS Team.
