camp Archives - Summer 365
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’m not going to lie, I started hearing murmurs of other camp families getting their first letter yesterday and then I was consumed with the thought of mine. When was I going to hear from my new camper? Is he happy? Does he like his bunk? Then it all pays off… I have turned all my energy to total jealousy! What I would do to be in his shoes again.
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.
In our newest series, Sum Things to Know, we will be interviewing real moms about the do’s, don’ts, wishes, wants, favorite things, and fun times! Here at Summer 365, we give you the best advice because we have the experience to back it up!
First, we are hearing from Hallie Grodin, who is so excited about sending her son to camp for the first time. Check out what she has to say about being a mom to all boys, getting “that feeling” at the right camp, and the magic of experiencing camp through the eyes of a child.
March Madness is here! It’s exciting, a bit stressful, can be competitive, but should always be fun! Do you think we’re just talking about college basketball season? Nope! Choosing a summer camp or travel program for your child can be a hectic experience, but we are here to be your guides.
