Most children who go away from home for the first time experience a certain amount of homesickness. It is very natural and it is very real. Your camper is likely to experience it, even if they are  characteristically independent and outgoing.

We understand that the Covid-induced isolation and social challenges of the past year could make adjusting to camp a bit different this year, and we are anticipating this challenge. Please do not hesitate to be in touch to discuss your child's individual needs.

However, please do not tell your child “I know you’ll be homesick,” which can create a self-fulfilling prophecy.
