Traditional Summer Camps Or Specialized

Some residential summer camps combine activities of the traditional summer camp of yesteryear with the more specialized ones of today. Will your child enjoy a traditional arts and crafts summer camp or a sports summer camp? Or will he or she want a specialty camp, such as an academics summer camp, a performing arts camp, animal care or weight loss camp?

Cultural Programs Or International Camps

There are also overnight summer camps that help build an appreciation of shared cultural values while international summer camps with special programs add a new dimension to the camping experience and prepare children for responsible citizenship. There are many Jewish cultural camps and summer programs located in some of the most beautiful settings imaginable. Some are more observant than others. There is one that will fit your family's needs.

Special Needs Summer Camps

Rather more specialized are some summer camps catering specifically to children with learning differences and developmental disorders. Children and teens with diagnoses such as ADD, ADHD, Asperger's Syndrome, NLD, and developmental delays, can have wonderful summer experiences at special needs camp where the staff is professional and the programming is specifically geared to the population.

Day Camps

For younger children who are not quite ready for an overnight camp, Summer Camp & Trip Resources® represents several high quality day camps. These programs were chosen based on their reputation, programming, staff, and dedication to the younger child. They will provide a solid camping base in preparation for the overnight (sleepaway) experience.

So How Do You Decide?

You've contacted various sleepaway camps directly; you've looked at their literature. You've asked family and friends who've sent their children to an overnight summer camp. And the more you look and research, the more time-consuming it gets... and you're still not certain which residential camp is going to be best for your child...
