Editor’s Note: Second of two posts all about reading at camp and reading at home. This one is on our new Parent Resources Page, and the earlier post was on our new Lending Library during camp each summer.
In my job I’m always coming upon excellent resources for helping parents navigate the terrain of raising kids. In particular, camp conferences offer superior opportunities to be exposed to authors who are brought in to speak with great ideas that can help people in my position and parents alike.
That’s why I decided to set up a new Parent Resources Page on our website.
As partners in your daughter’s year-round education, we understand just how important her time at camp is, and how you entrust us with her care and development while she’s at camp. To that end, we want to share with you the tips and insight that help inform our approach to camp as an enriching learning environment.
Unlike our twice weekly blog posts, which are moved down in the queue as new entries are submitted, this page will always live under the Parents tab on the website, making it easy for you to find whenever you want to check it for ongoing updates and new links.
I think you’ll find that as a camp parent, you’ll want to know as much as possible about the history of camps, camp culture in general, the benefit of camp for your kids, and what to expect at camp. These resources will help you with that and more.
We hope you will enjoy this new hub and if you have any ideas for submissions or articles to add, or areas of concern you’d like to see addressed, please e-mail me!
Happy reading (and watching and listening)!
