Could Sleep-Away Camp Be Beneficial for Your Child?

Season #1 Episode #81

In this episode of the 3D Parent Podcast, we are talking about sleep-away camp and whether or not your child should go. This can be a wonderful opportunity for your child to grow in maturity and independence, make new friends, and just have an incredibly fun summer experience. Today, I’ll guide you through some things to consider as you decide whether attending a sleep-away camp would be a good option for your child. 

Points we discuss include:

  • Possible benefits of sleep-away camp
  • How to prepare your child for camp
  • How to help your child hold onto your connection when you are apart
  • Post-camp “re-entry”

Sleep-away camp can be an invaluable experience for children. They have the opportunity to make memories and friendships that last a lifetime. However, your child may not be ready for it yet, or it may not ever be a good fit for them. You have to find the opportunity that’s best for you and your family. I hope this episode helps you take the necessary steps to make this decision.
