As a kid, I remember going to a camp fair to select my first overnight camp. While nervous to be away from my family, I was excited to experience and learn what “camp” was all about.  My parents were always talking about their time away at summer camp.  Needless to say I had an amazing time and couldn’t wait to return next year. I will be forever grateful to my parents for letting me spend my summers at camp because that is where I meet the people who became my longest friendships.

With that said, we are thrilled to bring you The Ultimate Sleepaway Camp Guide! While sending your kids to sleepaway camp can be a tough decision (for parents!), it’s a rite of passage for kids that can instill confidence, help them gain new skills, and most importantly, have a ton of fun. Plus, they’ll make friends and memories that will last a lifetime.


When you make the choice to send your child to summer camp, it’s important to do your research. We hope this guide will help with that, providing you essential information on some of the best camps in our area and beyond, in one convenient place!
