Ready – Set – CAMP?

from our friends at Farm & Wilderness…

How to Prepare Campers for their First Overnight Camp Experience?

  • Include them in gathering, purchasing, labeling and packing their gear and letter writing materials
  • Encourage them to bring a personal comfort  object that is not priceless or irreplaceable
  • Share your own reflections and whatever you know that may interest them about their camp
  • Send a letter before they leave to arrive within their first few days
  • Provide sleepover opportunities with friends/ relatives to ease the transition
  • Prepare them to be open minded and positive about new friends, experiences, expectations, food, etc.
  • Have fun and ask them to tell you all about it in their first note home!
