Your our Summer Checklist C Here are a few steps Her eps to t follow as you search for the perfect summer setting for your child.

1

Begin as early ly as possible. p Many camps start enrolling in February and fill quickly, so it helps to begin looking early.

2

Decide whatt is important imp for you and your child. • Write down wn your your needs needs, wants and wishes. • Wha hatt ac activities would most interest your child? • What do you and your child want to gain from the camp experience?

3

• Will your child need transportation? • Can you afford the cost? Does the camp offer scholarships/ financial assistance/early bird discounts or multiple child discounts? • Will the camp accept a child care subsidy voucher?

Consider onsider different diff types of programs. • Residential esidential Camps: C Children en generally gener sleep away from home for one or more mor weeks eeks and can enjoy enjo day and evening activities. The emphasis of these programs pr ams is incr increasing the independence and self-help sk skills of campers.. • Day Camps: mps: Campers ampers arrive ar e in the mor morning and return home at the end of the day, da , ha having ving enjo enjoyed activities tivities and field tr trips. There are some halfhalf-dayy options. options

• Specialty Camps: Campers devote a majority of their time to one activity. The staff and facilities are geared toward intensive experiences in activities such as music, sports, art, science or wilderness and adventure. • Child Care Programs: Many child care programs offer special activities and adapt their schedules to meet the summer and track-out needs of families. Look for programs licensed by the North Carolina Division of Child Development and Early Education and rated 3- to 5-stars.

ADDITIONAL POINTS TO CONSIDER Answering “yes” to most or all of these questions will increase your child’s chance of having a successful summer camp experience: • Is the camp licensed by the North Carolina Division of Child Development & Early Education or accredited by the American Camp Association (ACA)? • Do the camp’s counselor to child ratios meet ACA standards? (1:5 for ages 4–5; 1:6 for ages 6–8; 1:8 for ages 9–14; 1:10 for ages 15–17) • Are at least 40–60% of the camp counselors returning from last year? • Is the camp director experienced and do they hold a higher education degree?

• Are camp staff members trained in safety regulations, emergency procedures, behavior management techniques, specific procedures for supervision, and appropriate staff and camper behavior? • Are at least 80% of camp counselors 18 years of age or older? • Are there medical routines and procedures in place for emergencies? • Is there a parent-contact policy, and how is homesickness handled?


Choose the best camp for your child. You can use this publication to create a list of 4-8 camps that meet the criteria you identified in steps 2 & 3. Consider the following questions when narrowing your search: • Is your child ready for a sleep-away experience? Be sure your child is ready for the length of program you select.

• Is the camp equipped to handle any type of special needs your child may have? (dietary, medical, physical, behavioral, etc.)

• Will the camp encourage your child to try new things?

• Does the camp follow American Camp Association (ACA) standards? The ACA is a national association that evaluates camps based on 300 health and safety areas, personnel, transportation and administrative procedures. Not all camps choose to be accredited. If you are interested in a program that is not accredited you can use these standards found at www.acacamps.org as a guide in your selection process.

• How structured is the program? Is it flexible or highly structured? • What size camp community will make your child feel comfortable? Sizes can range from 30 to 500 campers.

Summer Options 2018

4

Visit the camp site and talk with the director. Do your homework and research camps ahead of time. Some programs offer year-round activities, and it’s possible to visit before the summer actually begins. • Get to know your child’s counselors and the camp staff. • Don’t be afraid to ask questions. The more you know now, the better your child’s camp experience will be.

6

Ask for references. Get the names of parents with children the same age as your child who have attended the camp. Ask them: • What did your child enjoy most about the camp? • Is there anything you did not like about the camp? • Would you enroll your child in this camp again?

Durham/Orange County

• Review the camp’s brochures, web site, videos and/or DVDs with your child.

• May my child talk to your child about the camp experience?
