Resources for Parents

Sending a child to camp can sometimes be harder for the parents than for the child. There are many available resources to help parents prepare themselves and their child for the camp experience.

American Camp Association

The American Camp Association website has a wealth of information for parents. This online resource for families includes expert advice, packing and homesickness tips and information on health and safety.

Check your camp provider’s website for additional advice and packing lists.
