Simply put, our Camp Fairs are the best resource to research and find the best camp for your child.
What You Can Expect
Our Camp Fairs are FREE events that take place on weekends and feature a wide variety of both day and sleepaway camps for campers ages 3-18. During your time at the Camp Fair, you will have the opportunity to learn about the camp programs and get to know the leadership teams at these camps. Websites and word of mouth can’t replace face-to-face conversations with the people who will be caring for your child at camp so take the time to meet them.
How to Prepare
Before visiting a Camp Fair in New York, consider what type of experience you are looking for your child to have at camp. The more questions you ask, the better you will be able to understand what the camp is about and if it’s the right fit for your child. Also keep in mind that the more open you are with camp directors, the better informed you will be when it comes to making a decision. Here are a few questions to ask the camp leadership team:
- What is your camp’s mission and philosophy?
- What type of child is successful at your camp?
- What is your camp’s program?
- What type of training and education do you and your staff have?
- What are the safety procedures?
- What are your enrollment options?
- How does your camp handle special needs?
Keep in mind that the more open families are with camp directors, the better informed they will be when it comes to making a decision.
