In case of feeling homesick, we will work very hard to help him or her overcome it. Most children who leave camp before the end experience their early departure as a failure; it can have a negative impact on their self-esteem, and teaches withdrawal as a response to challenge.
We have enormous stores of techniques to address homesickness; with your support, the likelihood that we will achieve positive results is extremely high. So if your camper writes you a letter saying or implying that they’re homesick, please call and we'll work together with you and let you know what is happening now. We might ask you to write a specifically worded, upbeat letter, for example, or give us an idea of which activity your child is specifically looking forward to. We'll figure it out together!
Very often, a sad letter usually gives way to proud tales of adventure, fun, and success!
