    Advice on finding the right camp

    Choosing a kids’ camp shouldn’t be taken all that lightly. Parents should consider camp as more than just a way to fill a week of summer. Kids make friends and have experiences that can impact them for the rest of their lives. This is really driven home when you attend the Toronto Summer Camp Expo, held every February. There, you can meet face-to-face with counsellors and campers who will share the impact the experience has had on their lives. 

    Whether you are speaking to camps at the expo or reaching out to them online through camps.ca, here are some basic questions to help you make a wise choice: 

    • What activities are focused on and how much time is given to each?
    • What are the camp’s projected outcomes? (How will kids grow? What’ll they learn?)  
    • What is the expected ratio of kids to counsellors? 
    • Can they provide multiple testimonials or reviews from parents or campers? 
    • Does the camp have financial assistance available such as sibling discounts, etc.?
