Choosing the Right Summer Camp for Your Kids


Summer is quickly approaching, but it’s not too late to find a summer camp for your kids. But it seems like there are so many camps out there, how do you choose the right one?

Camp counselors say finding a camp your child enjoys is important, but you might want to first start by finding an accredited camp that is up to the standards of the American Camp Association.

As far as getting the kids ready, it's important to make sure they feel comfortable.

Some camps have a program where parents can stay with their kids at camp the first time to get them accustomed to it.

Finally, make sure the camp you choose has a good line of communication between the parents, kids and counselors.

    Just to offer some additional advice, online summer camp directories and eCamp sites are great resources for locating a summer program in a specific geographic location or one that specializes in a particular activity (sports, technology, etc.). To find a good eCamp site, go to Google and search “summer camps Madison” or even the state name like Wisconsin. I actually work for iD Tech Camps and iD Teen Academies where we run summer tech programs across the nation. Students can learn iPhone app development, video game design, website creation and much more. We hold weeklong programs at the University of Wisconsin and more Anyway, I just wanted to pass along the information, but if you have any specific questions feel free to call 1-888-709-TECH (8324) or email Good luck with your camp search!
