Ladies and gentleman it’s March Madness! And NO we are not referring one of the most famous sporting events in the US. We are talking about another highly anticipated event of an entirely different variety. It’s summer planning time for our children!
Believe it or not, summertime will be here before we know it. As the winter days fade into spring (and we all collectively hope and pray for warm weather), many parents will start to think of summer plans and sleepaway camp for their children.
All of our Summer 365 Counselors are hard at work helping families solidify their children’s summer plans for this summer AND summer 2015. It’s been a busy year and we are SO excited about all of the families we have ‘partnered’ with to help give the gift of summer (camp, programs, and experiences).
But for anyone reading this who hasn’t begun thinking about summer, fear not! Navigating your way through the twists and turns of every possible summer scenario for your child can be overwhelming but with Summer 365 as your guide, you can rest assured the perfect camp or program is just ahead.
For those families looking to send their child to a sleepaway camp or overnight summer program or experience this summer, rest assured it is not too late to begin your search! Phew. While some camps can fill up quickly, many camps still have spots available as do teen summer programs. Whether you are looking for a full summer session (6, 7, and 8 weeks) or a camp with shorter sessions (1, 2, 3, 4, 5 weeks) there are many options we can help you explore. We also suggest having a call, home visit or video chat with the director or a staff member so you and your child can ask questions about the camp or program. Additionally, speaking to references is a valuable tool to learn about other children’s firsthand experiences. Camps happily connect prospective families with current families at the camp. Contact us today to plan the summer of a lifetime!
And it’s not too early to start planning for summer 2015. Especially when looking for a sleepaway camp, we begin working with families 18 months to a year in advance of the summer they plan to send their child. Choosing a sleepaway camp is a big emotional and financial commitment. We suggest getting a heard start on the process to provide ample time to research. It’s ideal to visit a camp while it is in session, the year before you plan to send your child. That way, you can see camp and the campers in action, tour the facilities, and speak to staff and ask questions in person. There is no better way to get a feel for the camp’s culture and philosophy than seeing it firsthand. Summer 365 can help you map out your trip, plan your travels, and schedule tours and rookie days.
With lots of summer love,
The Summer 365 Counselors
