Tips on choosing the perfect summer camp for your preschooler in Houston, Texas

Posted on 05-26-2014 | Jim & Kathy Smith

preschool_houston_tx.jpgIf you went to summer camp in Houston, Texas as a child, then you may recall the many experiences you had during that time. But with so many programs available to choose from, how do you know which one is the right one for your child?

  • Expectations. It is important to talk with your child about their expectations of summer camp . Find out what activities your child is interested in and what ideas they may have about attending a camp. Search for a camp that offers the types of activities your child enjoys and one that provides educational opportunities as well. If your child has never been to camp, discuss with them their desires and their misconceptions and search together for the right camp.

  • Hours of Operation. Summer camps offer both full day and partial day programs. As a busy parent, your scheduling needs are important to consider. You want to make sure that the camp you choose is open early enough in the morning for you to get to work on time, and late enough in the evening that you don't feel unnecessarily stressed during your afternoon commute.

  • Friends. The more local the camp, the more likely it is that friends of your child will be enrolled at the same camp. Having friends at the same camp can be key to reducing separation anxiety, which can sometimes occur in preschoolers. Introducing a small child to camp staff helps build trust and helps you feel more confident in leaving your child stay at summer camp.

  • Visit the camp location. Go with your child to the summer camp locations and get a feel for each camp's environment. Meet the staff, view the facilities and be tuned in to your child's reaction. This will help both you and your child develop a level of familiarity with the camp and feel more secure.
