Nervous about sending your daughter to camp?
Are you concerned about your daughter’s first overnight camp experience? Never fear, we have some resources that can help!
Dr. Christopher Thurber, psychologist at Phillips Exeter Academy as well as a staff member at a YMCA camp, is a leading researcher in the field of homesickness. He suggests sending your daughter to sleepovers at a friend’s house or at Grandma’s place as a way to begin the confidence building that will help the transition from home to camp.
We’ve purchased fifty copies of a very instructive DVD by Dr. Thurber for first time parents and campers. This straight talking advice may be difficult to hear, but it is time tested advice and extremely valuable to parents and campers. Please contact Amanda at [email protected] if you would like to receive a copy!
