How do you know your child is ready for sleepaway camp? How do you know you are? What kind of camp is the right fit for your family?
There are no right or standard answers to these questions, and it's natural to feel nervous about a big transition like summer camp that means several weeks from home. I was recently invited to discuss the anxieties around camp readiness with Camp Specialists, a service in Westchester, NY and beyond that helps families find the camp that's best suited for them, free of charge.
