Questions to ask
about day camp
If overnight camp is not the right
choice for your youngster, or if your
child is younger than 7, look into the
many summer day camp programs
available. It can even prepare your
child for overnight camp.
Some points to consider when
choosing a day camp:
• Training: Is the staff trained
in safety, supervision, counseling,
problem solving, and other
issues important to working with
• Cost: Is the price all-inclusive,
or do extra charges apply for
transportation, horseback riding,
food service, group pictures,
T-shirts, and other items?
• Transportation: If
transportation is offered, do you
live near a pick-up spot?
• Extended care: If before and
after care is offered to accommodate
working parents, who is with the
children and what activities take
• Lunch: Is lunch served, or do
campers bring their own?
• Swimming: If swimming is
offered, are lessons included, or is
swimming only recreational?
• Supervision: Does one
counselor stay with a group all
day? Or are campers free to roam
from one activity to another? If
so, who supervises children in
• Visits: Are parents allowed to
drop by for visits?
