We checked with some campers and parents – have come up with the list that separates great camps from the good ones.

Popsicle-Summer camp checklistSafety: Safety is paramount importance when choosing a summer camp.

Parents say: We want to know who’s watching my kids and who’s watching the staff who is watching my kids.

Popsicle-Summer camp checklistEducation: Learning must be integrated into the camps.

Parents say: Our children should learn something from the camp whether benefits of keeping themselves fit or eating and cooking healthier meal etc. after they come back from the camp. We don’t want them to be expert at it but yes, it helps when they come back willing to keep at it.

Popsicle-Summer camp checklistFun: Of course fun counts, having blast at the summer camp and cherishing memories.

Parents say: Lots of fun ways to engage children in not so overly-structured and overly scheduled routines. It one of the highly expected factors in selection.

Popsicle-Summer camp checklistCost: Getting the most for their money with some value-added features.

Parents say: While the cost of the summer camps may vary, just want to make sure money covers the best in the camp – meals and snacks, hygiene and value-based learning in the process.
