Tips for Choosing a Camp

So many choices! Help your child decide on the right camp this summer. Use this information as a guide to help your entire family decide which camp will help create great childhood memories. Everyone remembers how much fun they had at camp.

Here are four quick tips to keep in mind when planning your child's summer camps:

  1. Be sure to involve your child. Children will enjoy camp more if they have a say in which camp they would like to attend. Discuss as a family what type of experience and achievements you hope to get from camp. What holds your child’s interest or what would they want to learn more about? Sit down and look at the camp brochure and see what sparks their interest.
  2. Ask questions. Call SCC’s Continuing Education Department (636-922-8233) and ask questions. Our staff will be happy to provide you with the information you need. Watch the College for All Kids website for information. You are  welcome to arrange a visit at the college and talk to our staff in person.
  3. Involve the family and keep everyone in mind. Be sure you are comfortable with camp hours. Your child will feel at ease knowing they are arriving on time and will be picked up on time. If you have children of different ages, be sure to check the camps for each age. We offer something for everyone.
  4. Carpool. If work makes it difficult to get your child to camp, consider telling a friend or neighbor about the camp so you can take turns carpooling. Plus, kids love to attend camp with friends, especially if it is their first experience and they don’t know what to expect. Just like at school, they will be sure to make new friends, too.

SCC’s College for All Kids has a wide variety of camps from which to choose. Take a look at our website and what we offer. Be sure to register early; many of our camps fill very quickly and may only be offered once.
