Day Camp FAQs
Enrolling your child in a summer day camp program gives your child opportunities for travel and recreation than you might not have the time to provide. If you are interested in sending your child to a day camp, then the following answers to some commonly asked questions might prove useful to you:

What are day camps?
Day camps are summertime programs for children and teenagers that offer structured daytime recreational activities. Children enrolled in day camps are often taken on field trips to parks, museums, sporting events, amusement parks, public swimming pools, beaches and innumerable other locations. They also organize activities such as basketball, soccer, volleyball and baseball games, as well as offer arts and crafts courses. They are operated by counselors, teachers and coaches that often act as mentors to the children, as well as supervisors.

What kind of day camps are available?
While basic day camps offer great opportunities for exercise, making new friends and learning new things, some parents would like their children to be enrolled in camps that offer specialized training or activities. You can find camps for particular sports such as football, baseball, soccer, tennis and basketball that offer coaching and training. There are music camps that give kids the opportunity to learn and play their instruments with masters in the art. There are theater camps that train students in performing arts such as acting, dance and singing, and allow kids to put on plays and dance recitals.

How do I choose a day camp?
Because you are entrusting your child into the care of strangers, you will want to research any day camp you choose most carefully. The camp you choose must have American Camp Association accreditation. The American Camp Association is an agency that ensures the quality of American day camps. Be certain that the camp is fully insured against accident and injury, and that the staff is trained in safety, counseling, coping with behavioral problems and first aid. Ask for a published document that delineates the camp's rules and policies.

Day camps provide children with social, educational and physical outlets, as they often involve sports, music, or science. Young boys and girls or teens are often are sent to day camps by their parents to get intense physical or education opportunities they wouldn't otherwise get. Day camps can include summer, soccer, basketball, swim, music, space, and more. They are often held at campgrounds, parks, fields, or lakeside areas. If it's an overnight or summer camp, children are separated into cabins and given their own bed or bunk. They are usually assigned a day camp counselor or leader, who then assigns a captain for teams. Sometimes camps, such as soccer camps, are run daily, for a few hours at a time, with no overnight stays. Travel soccer camps, for instance, may travel around the state a few times a week to compete. Camps are thought to be important to proper growth and development in teens and children, as well as proper social interaction skills, education, exercise and the ability to explore. Day camps are typically put on by city recreation departments, private day camp providers, organizations and associations. If you would like to learn more about day camps in your community, contact a counselor, provider, organization, or recreation association by looking in your local phone book or searching online directory listings. In addition, check out your local community center or school to inquire about day camps for your kid. Ask other parents for advice and recommendations as well as to the best recreation and sports programs in the area.
