This is the perfect opportunity to see all of the sleep away camp facilities, cabins where he or she will be sleeping, and explore the surroundings. While looking at pictures of the camp and taking an online tour is great, you won’t truly know if it is the right sleep away camp until you visit it. BUT hurry, father time is creeping up on you!
