Rejoice When There Are No Letters From Sleep Away Camp
June 23, 2011 · Posted in K-5 Kids, Parenting, Teens · Permalink

Sleep away camp is one of the most wonderful ways for children to form lifelong friendships, enjoy their independence and to just plain have fun. When it comes to getting letters, no news is good news!  The obligatory once a week, “Camp is good. I miss you,” letters are just fine. Try not to get pulled into the thrice daily checking of camp websites posting pictures of activities. You want your kids to really feel that other worldy feeling of summer camp.

So, if your kids are away, here are some do’s and don’ts:

Don’t call camp and complain that your child isn’t been photographed in more activities.

Don’t worry if you get minimal contact by mail, it is a good sign that your child is having a great time.

Do take adantage of your freedom and enjoy the time with younger kids, spouse and friends.

Do remember that the independence, skills and experiences that kids get at camp are some of the most beloved–so relax.
