6 MONTH SUMMER PLANNING GUIDE:
JANUARY: Contact your TIPS Advisor (if you are already in contact with your Advisor, please skip to February). TIPS Advisors can be found on TIPS website. Share your summer goals and learn what’s new for 2024. Next, work with your Advisor to receive a list of outstanding summer options hand-selected specifically for you.
FEBRUARY: Explore and evaluate options. Your TIPS Advisor can help differentiate between camps and programs. *Enroll in program of your choice.
MARCH: Now that you’ve enrolled, build camp and program connectivity. Connect with camp or program directors for exciting ways of becoming part of your camp’s community. Winter camp newsletters may offer virtual games, pre-camp happenings and information about meet-ups in your home city.
APRIL: With Spring in the air and thoughts of summer camp beginning to surface, this is the perfect time to reach out to other camp families in your area. Connecting with another camp family can help provide a friendly face for you and your camper.
MAY: Label, label and more labels on all clothes and belongings bound for camp! This takes time, so May is a great month to plunge in.
JUNE: Stationery, stamps and stickers galore. Review with younger kids how to address envelopes for letters home.
……AND you’re off to camp to have a purposeful summer of fun and memories!
*NOTE: Several camps/programs may be full or nearing capacity in particular age groups and/or sessions. Please feel free to ask your TIPS Advisor on status per program.
