Finding the Right Summer Camp

March 10, 2023

As the warmer months approach, it’s not too early to begin researching summer camps for the kids. In fact, the earlier you begin doing so, the better your chances are of making sure your children secure their spots in your first pick. As you begin to investigate different camps, there are certain factors to pay close attention to. It’s important to know that the place you’re sending your children to is safe and trustworthy. 


One of the first things to look for in a camp is how long it has been around. While there’s nothing alarming about a camp being new, you might feel more comfortable sending your children somewhere that has had the opportunity to acquire positive reviews and employ a well-trained staff. A dive into the history of an organization will also highlight their credibility. Have they had unpleasant incidents occur? Does the staff have a high turnover rate? Are the facilities well taken care of? These questions are important to uncover as you determine which camp will be the best fit. 



Additionally, it’s important to determine what sort of activities the camp offers. You want to make sure your children are interested in those activities and will be a good sport about partaking in them. If your kids are into music or being outdoors, sending them to a camp focused on art will likely not be a good fit. Make sure your children are interested in the activities the camp offers. 

Communication plan

Knowing the camp’s communication plan is vital. What is their method of action if a child gets hurt or sick? How well do they keep the parents in the loop about the schedule? Depending on how involved you’d like to be with your children’s camp schedule will depend on how detailed you’d like their communication plan to be. 

In conclusion, you want to ensure the camp you send your children to is safe, reliable, and trustworthy. Keeping these factors in mind as you begin your research will help to reveal the best possible camp for your kids. 

"We recently purchased our very first home and could not be more pleased with Ole South Properties and, more specifically, our experience with Alex. Alex completed our warranty and closing day walk through with us and has consistently exceeded our expectations. Since moving in, we have required a few repairs and each time we have reached out to Alex, he and Ole South have acted immediately and with the highest level of professionalism. Being a new homeowner can be overwhelming, but Ole South's pride for their work and Alex's level of care for our family have made us feel beyond grateful that we chose an Ole South property to call home. We love our new home and are so thankful for the entire Ole South team. We have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking for a home!"
