How to Choose the Perfect Summer Camp
Summer is just about here which means school will be out and it’s time to decide how you’re going to spend those sunny days. If you’re considering going to a summer camp this year to fill the time deciding which one is best for you can be hard. Check out these tips on how to choose a summer camp!
What Are You Into?
Summer camp is a great opportunity to expand your horizons, especially if you have a hobby that you don’t have the time or means to pursue during the school year. There are summer camps for everything from horseback riding and tennis to theater or art, and chances are you can find one that’s a great fit for you! One of the best things about going to summer camp is meeting new people and getting a fresh start. You can just relax and be yourself when you’re with other people who love something as much as you do. Alternatively you may just want to unwind with a classic camp experience, like making s’mores by a campfire and swimming every day at a lake.
Make a List
After you’ve decided what kind of camp you’re looking for, sit down with your parents and make a list of what else you are looking for in a camp. Do you want a sleep-away camp? Do you want to go where your friends or siblings are going? How far away is it and what can you afford (questions your parents will definitely ask!)?
Do you want a traditional summer camp, complete with smores and scary stories by the campfire?
Ready to Research
Once you’ve decided what kind of camp you’re looking for it’ll be easy to go online and see what options suit you best. If you’re unsure about a camp call and ask for more information, most camps are more than happy to help you find the best fit. A great way to find the best camp can sometimes be word of mouth, if you know anyone who has been to one and you’re considering it you should ask them how their experience was to see if it sounds like your kind of thing.
Once you’ve got all the information all there is left to do is decide on your favorite and enjoy your summer!
