What if I get homesick?
It is important to know that a lot of campers get a little homesick. It is normal to feel that way. Even counselors get homesick.
1. It is important to tell your counselor if you are missing home and your mom and dad. He will be able to help.
2. The easiest way to get rid of homesickness, is to stay busy! Having fun at camp will make you forget about being homesick.
3. Before you come to camp, practice being away from home. Stay overnight at a friend's house or at your grandparent's.
Mom and Dad: Let your son help pack his trunk and prepare for camp. Talking with him about going to camp and how he feels is a helpful way to make sure he will have a successful time at camp.
For first-time Campers... We highly recommend, "The Secret Ingredients of Summer Camp Success," DVD and CD set. The DVD is made for you to watch with your son. It has video of campers talking about camp and how they prepare. The CD that comes with it is for parents, about what to do after you drop your son off at camp.
