DSC_0650Yes, we know that September just began and you aren’t even thinking about next summer yet.

Finding the perfect camp may seem impossible, but Forest Lake Camp is here to help! Our boys summer camp Vermont has come up with a few tips in order to make this process a little easier on you, because we know how difficult it can be. So keep on reading to find out how to find the perfect camp for your son or daughter!

  • Start your search early. Many camps will offer some kind of discount to the traditional camp rates for those who sing their children up early. In addition to saving some money, you won’t have to stress about finding a camp in a short amount of time. Many parent wait until March or April to begin looking, and it’s very common for camps to be filled or to be put on a waiting list at that point. To guarantee your child a spot, select the perfect camp as early as possible.
  • The best way to guarantee that your son or daughter enjoys the camp is by sending them to one that offers activities that he or she is interested in. Traditional camp activities include everything from swimming and sports to hiking and other outdoor adventures. When beginning your search, ask your child what he or she is interested in doing this summer. Some children may want to try something new while others prefer to continue on with their favorite activity at home, so let your child make the decision.
  • Make sure that you are comfortable with and trust the traditional camp staff at the camp. See what kind of hiring process and training they went through. At Forest Lake Camp, we believe that our staff is one of the best, and ready to give your child the best summer ever!
