We are SO excited to have you here. Our website has been a little labor of love, and we are psyched to have it live. We hope you find some valuable information on our site about our service and our team.
To kick things off on the Simply Summer blog, we wanted to share a note from the Founder and Chief Summer 365 Counselor and our fearless leader, Susan Kasnett.
Dear Parents and Friends,
My summers as a child had an amazingly profound effect on my life. I spent 9 years at sleepaway camp (and one on a teen tour). As a young camper, I remember looking forward to reuniting with my friends, making new ones, and soaking up new experiences. These magical moments were gifts that I could not wait to pass along to my three children. As they grew up, I could see how the benefits of a positive summer helped shape their character and strengthen their commitment to achieve greater. These benefits are long lasting, life changing, and the reason why I felt compelled to start Summer 365.
Summer 365 is a complimentary advisory service that’s dedicated to helping parents find the perfect summer experience for your child. Our recommendations don’t come from a computer—they come from real people with real insider knowledge on over 500 top sleepaway camps and teen programs, trips and travel throughout the country (and around the world). As a mom and former camper, I know the importance of getting it right. The right match ensures your peace of mind—and a summer your child will never forget.
Our service is a legacy passed down through our Summer 365 family and freely provided to yours because we believe that a fulfilling summer can hold treasured memories and friendships, while also acting as a core growth and developmental milestone.
Our job at Summer 365 is to make yours easier. We’re a resource for our clients year round because thinking about—and preparing for— summer can be a full-time job. We bring friendliness, fun, and personality to a task that for many parents feels like an overwhelming and exhausting chore. You’ll be so happy it’s our full-time job and not yours!
While technology has made information readily available, at the end of the day, you want someone you can talk to—someone who has your child’s best interest at heart—and is a real expert in the field.
With that said, I couldn’t be happier with my team of Summer 365 Counselors. They are an all-star group of mothers and former campers, counselors, and camp directors. They have endless enthusiasm and passion for their work and are true believers in the power of overnight camps and summer experiences. They’ll give you real insider knowledge, helpful advice, and over 30 years of combined experience.
In the end, you’ll not only make the right decision—you’ll make a new friend.
Let’s talk summer,
