Today begins our 1st annual Camp Counselor Appreciation Week!

Our sleepaway camp community wouldn't be as fun, exciting, safe, nurturing or life changing without the 200+ dedicated bunk counselors, sports coaches, arts teachers, lifeguards, kitchen staff, medical team, office associates or maintenance and housekeeping members who dedicate their lives each summer to making this such an amazing experience for our campers. And this week we want to try and thank them all in different blog and Instagram posts!

Finding the right sleepaway camp for your family is no easy feat, especially if you are unsure of whether or not all of the children in your home should attend the same camp!

Some focus on specific sports, arts, outdoor or aquatic skills, while others offer more generalized programs that seek to foster long-lasting friendships, independence, and resilience. Some sleepaway camps are a great fit for all of the boys and/or girls in a household, while others are a perfect match for some and leave others wanting something else. As a parent, going into your camp search with a strong sense of what your priorieties are is crucial.
