Sending the Kids to Summer Camp

One of my favorite movies as a kid was The Parent Trap, with Lindsey Lohan.  Watching it reminds me of something I think about now that I have my own kids.  I always wondered what it would have been like to be able to go off to summer camp for a few months and do all the fun activities and meet new friends.  I never had this opportunity when I was a kid, so I would love to be able to give this chance to my kids!

I have started looking for summer camps and I found one that I think looks like it could be really fun, Camp Chateaugay.  They have this Big Brother/Big Sister program to help new or young campers adapt and help establish friendships.  They also have a teen program for older campers so teens can do activities designed just for them.

This camp is quite a distance from where we live, but that may be a good thing. I want my kids to get out and explore the world and perhaps summer camp that is not right in our backdoor is a great way to do that!

    Hi there! I'm Caroline, a 5 year camper at Camp Chateaugay. Chateaugay is an amazing choice for your kids. It truly is the best place on earth. I would be a completely different person without the experiences and new family Chateaugay has given me. I just finished Wilderness, my final summer at camp. It was absolutely incredible. Even the most challenging, worst moments of the summer, I wouldn't trade for the world. The people I met at Chateaugay became my family, the grounds became a second home. The big/little program is a great way for young campers to get acclimated, but the staff-especially the counselors- are so sweet and welcoming that it's hardly necessary! If you have any questions about the camp, feel free to email me! It's limey10@ymail.com. The owner, Dov (Bear) Shapiro, will also come to your house and tell you about the camp if you are so inclined. Bear was one of the main reasons I initially chose Chateaugay, and it was the best decision I ever made. Reply
