Because children need constant stimulation and social interaction, summer camp is the perfect way to keep your kids occupied this summer. However, there are so many camps to choose from! The Kangaroo Forest has compiled a list of tips for choosing a camp that best suits your child:


Identify your child’s interests


From music and art to sports and adventure, there are summer camps for a variety of hobbies and interests. Before choosing a summer camp, identify what your child’s interests are. If your child participates in band or theatre during the school year, camps geared toward these interests would be ideal.


Choose between a day camp or overnight camp


Before choosing a summer camp, you should decide whether a day or overnight camp would be best for your child. The age of your child is a huge factor in this decision. Younger children will often attend day camp, while older children prefer overnight camps. If your child is not yet used to staying away from home overnight, a day camp may be a better fit.


Determine your budget


One of the most important factors in choosing a summer camp is your budget. How much are you willing to spend on camp attendance? Once you have determined your budget, you can narrow your options down.
