5 Reasons to Choose Day Camp Over Sleepaway

By Miriam Peretsman of Camp Riverbend in Warren, NJ.

Summer will be here before you know it so now is the time to start thinking about summer camp. But how does a parent go about deciding between sending their child to a day camp or a sleep away camp. So why choose a day camp?

5 Reasons Day Camp Might be Right for Your Child:
1. For children too young for traditional resident camp; many camps offer programs designed especially for children as young as 3 years old, where even pre-schoolers can reap the benefits of camp.  

2. For children with evening or weekend commitments, such as a sports league; day camp lets these children experience the joys of camp, while still being able to participate in other local activities.

3. For children (and parents!) who are not comfortable sending a child far away from home for a full week or more.  Day camps are, by definition, local, and children come home every afternoon.

4. For families who haven’t experienced camp in any format before, day camp is a way to “test the waters” and see if the camp experience fits their needs

5. Day camp is generally less expensive than resident camp.

So when parents and children are considering summer camp, remember that day camp provides many of the same benefits as resident camp, just in a slightly different format!
