IS MY CHILD
TOO OLD TO START SLEEP-AWAY CAMP?
summer we have lots of 12, 13, 14 and even 15-year-olds at our sleep-away
camps who haven't been away from home before, so the answer to this question
is definitely, "No!" These are our most popular age groups and they
always fill up first!
Sometimes a parent thinks that
their older son or daughter is the only one who hasn't lived away from home
yet, but that's definitely not true. Every child is ready at a
different age for living away from home
for the first time. And first-timers -- of all ages -- are a Campus Kids
Our most popular age groups
are for campers entering 7th grade right on up through 10th grade.
These groups are a mixture of returning campers and first-timers.
Why do older campers like
Campus Kids so much? Among the many reasons:
- SETTING -- Our teenagers love the campus setting at CK-NJ. It's cool to be
on a such an amazing campus with unbelievable facilities. The dorms, the indoor pools, the sports and arts facilities
all terrific. Our CK-Minisink teens love the adventure of the cabin
camp setting and such special activities as ropes courses, climbing wall,
aqua zip-line and mountain biking.
-- Every camper chooses his/her
activities every day at Campus Kids. Teenagers are especially able
to take advantage of this unique feature of Campus Kids as they explore
new interests and/or concentrate in specialty areas.
- SOCIAL ATMOSPHERE -- Campus Kids campers are very accepting of each
other and we find relatively few
problems with social cliques. Since campers choose their own
activities we have many different "types" of kids and the prevailing
atmosphere is acceptance of individual
differences. The artists are as much at home as the athletes.
You can be yourself at Campus Kids.
- KEEPING IN TOUCH WITH
HOME -- Going home each weekend
allows campers to keep in touch with friends and family. You can
have a great time at sleep-away camp
and also see friends and do some
activities at home during the summer. It's the best of both worlds.
The only problem for teens at
Campus Kids is that you have to be sure to sign up for camp right away!
Spots are limited so call us to see what is still open for your age.
