Ensure a Happy Summer Camper

It's not just the 6 million American kids heading to summer camp who may have trouble adjusting. It's also their parents.

Course for a Happy Camper continued...

"When you signed the contract to send your child to camp, there was also an implied contract that you trust they will have fun and be safe," says Albano.

"It's normal to have concerns, but if you are really struggling with these issues, you're sending out contradictory messages that most children will pick up, and likely trigger or contribute to feelings of anxiety. The idea of going to camp may cause you both distress, but it's working through distress that helps us advance."
