Getting to know you Find out if there is an open house where you can meet the staff and see the facility prior to camp. If not, make other arrangements to introduce yourself to those who will be caring for your child. It is important for the camp directors and counselors to know you so they can keep you informed on how things are going for your child at camp. Finally, encourage your child to enjoy the experience. Mark the first day of camp on the family calendar and do a countdown. Help your child develop a checklist of items needed. And don't forget to share your own camp stories. Remind your child to do his best, obey the rules, be respectful of others and have a great time! Denise Yearian is the former editor of two parenting magazines and the mother of three children.
