Happy Mother’s Day to all! A thank you letter from our Co-Founder Lauren to her mother (and our other Co-Founder) Susan.
We spoke to Lauren Rutkowski – the owner and director of Camp IHC – to hear some aspects of what she loves about her job. She shared with us this beautiful piece Camp IHC ran this past summer about their makeup free policy, and we feel lucky to be able to share it with you.
Whether you are a first time camp parent or your child is returning for the 9th summer, now seems to be the time those packing lists have arrived. Packing is one of those things that has to be done, it needs to be accomplished at one point or another. And let’s face it… a goal without a plan is just a wish! So whether you are a planner or tend to be more of a procrastinator, here are 10 tips you won’t want to miss so you can create your own packing game plan!
Read the latest confession from one of our experts Hallie, giving you the real deal scoop on her experience as a first time camp parent. She is sharing all the feels about departure day and her camper coming home!
Camp has always been a very special place for kids, but now more than ever, camp is playing a significant role in the growth of children. If you are a parent you know first hand just how addicted kids have become to technology and their phones…. Put away the phone, (not suggesting for 7 weeks) and just try and unplug and see what benefits you reap. Here are seven ideas for parents to unplug this summer.
I am sitting here today and can’t believe how much I miss you. It hurts a little bit. Maybe because in one year at camp you grew up so fast – or because I know you will be so much more grown up when you get back in August….
I’ve been following lots of different stores and websites that sell camp items in the hopes of finding some great visiting day swag for my son. Here’s the problem…1) He’s a boy and doesn’t care about all the (awesome) camp jewelry etc (but would it be weird if I bought it for myself?!) 2) He’s not a candy kid…
Well, it’s only been 3 days since I put my son on the bus for his first summer at camp but it feels like an eternity! I kept reminding myself that it’s healthy for our kids to be anxious and nervous sometimes and to be pushed out of their comfort zone, from this they learn.
SOS! It usually happens during that first week of camp, when the adrenaline and crazy-making of packing, labeling, shipping, driving, hugging, kissing, and saying good bye has ended when you realize… your kid isn’t home! Have no fears, Summer 365’s survival kit to the rescue.
