5 Ways to Prepare Your Camper for Summer Camp
This week, I welcomed a special guest: Shannan Harley, council staff member and camp mom! Her daughter experienced her FIRST week of camp last week, and they were super smart about how to prepare. Here's an overview, but listen to this episode to get the details!
- Make sure she knows (and practices!) how to take care of her own body.
- Practice how she can protect herself from the elements.
- Prep her stuff.
- Discuss any restrictions for her participation. And give permission to do out-of-the-ordinary things too.
- Discuss her questions or concerns.
Plus, a bonus topic on how to adjust back to "regular life" after camp!
