PARENT’S POCKET GUIDE TO SURVIVING SLEEPAWAY CAMP

Your child is off to sleepaway camp and you’re free! Or are you? Here are a few tips to help keep you from fretting and worrying while they’re away.PARENT’S POCKET GUIDE TO SURVIVING SLEEPAWAY CAMP

Do give their bedroom a mini-makeover with fresh paint and new bedding. Plan a special homecoming meal.

Don’t watch movies about kids at camp causing mayhem, or spending time with crazy camp counselors.

Do send a cool care package. Include a letter and photo from the family pet; glow in the dark shoe strings and glow sticks; an origami swan and origami paper with age-appropriate patterns; Mad Libs and pencils.

Don’t call the camp every day. If something isn’t right, they will contact you.

Do – something you’ve never done before. Share your feelings and experience with your child.
