How to Find the Right New England Summer Camp for Your Child

summercampIt’s that time of year again - the time for researching and choosing an exciting summer camp experience for your child. The summer months are long, and enrolling your child in a structured program is a great way for them to stay busy.

According to the American Camp Association (ACA), there are more than 350 summer camps in our service area. Last year, over 150 people searched to find a trustworthy summer camp. Better Business Bureau Serving Eastern MA, ME, RI, & VT (BBB) offers tips on how to find a summer camp that both you and your child will agree on.

Depending on the camp, some will fill up quickly and start accepting applications as early as March 1st. Additionally, some camps that specifically cater to special activities or arts (soccer, tennis, music, theater, etc.) require an audition period before acceptance.

“Finding the perfect summer camp is a different process for every parent,” said Paula Fleming, Chief Marketing and Sales Officer for the local BBB. “Parents should look for a camp that covers their child’s age group and skill level and provides activities that are of interest to their child.”

Summer is the perfect time for children to try out new adventures like summer camps. Before signing your child up for a summer camp, be sure to read through these tips to ensure a fun-filled summer for all.
