Camp experts say: It depends. Your child's age, independence and previous camp experience are all factors; so is your comfort with having your child away. If your child is a first-time camper, it's worth keeping in mind that thousands of campers of all ages enjoy weeks on end in both day and residential settings. You may want to start with a week and gradually build to two weeks or a month. In the case of residential camps, directors say it often takes a week for kids to adjust and settle in, then a second week to fully get into camp life—so you may want to consider that bit of advice even when registering a first-timer.
Sometimes families also find that they can only afford 1 week of camp.

It all depends on your child and your budget. Look for a camp that offers flexibility - one week or two week sessions that can be extended.
