Questions for Camp Programs

In this day and age, you can find summer camps for sports like football and basketball as well as performing arts like music, dance, and band. While some of these are brief day camps, others are sleepaway programs that last all summer. Either way, it is important to learn all you can about a specific Christian youth program, soccer camp, or kid’s horseback riding adventure before you actually sign up. Below you will find a few helpful questions to ask boot camp or summer athletic program professionals.

  • How long does the boot camp, athletic program, or academic camp last?
    This is a very important question to ask, because while some programs go on all summer, others are simply overnight camps that last for a single weekend. The athletic retreat or cheerleading camp you choose may vary in length from others.

  • Are there trained counselors at the summer camp or sleepaway sports program, and how many?
    As a parent, you need to make certain someone is truly looking out for your kids or teenagers when they are away from home. Therefore you should meet the counselors ahead of time, if possible, and be sure you know how many are working.

  • Are boys and girls at the same camp?
    Regardless of whether the camp is for tennis, basketball, band, or nature, you need to know if boys and girls are going to be at the same camp, and if so, what are the sleeping arrangements?

  • Is there any off-site traveling that occurs during the day camp or summer program?
    You need to keep track of where your children are and where they are going. Therefore you should inquire about any day trips, commutes to other areas, or excursions to nearby towns, cities, or parks.

    If you loved summer camp as a little boy or a girl, consider turning it into a career. You can become a counselor and work at a sleepaway or day camp. At a day camp, you will work with the kids during the day and go home at night. At a sleepaway camp, you will stay overnight on the premises.

    If you are athletic, consider working at a boot or sports camp. There are programs for everything from basketball to tennis. There are ones for football, soccer and even cheerleading. If you love nature, consider a camp retreat program. You will get to go on adventures in the woods and travel to interesting places. You might even get to ride horses. If the performing arts are more your thing, consider band camp. You will get to teach kids about music and help them improve their band skills. There are even academic and Christian youth camps, so you will be able to find one that is designed around your skills and interests.

    To become a summer camp counselor, you should love working with kids, and you should have a passion for the activities involved. For example, if you love sports, a basketball or boot camp would be better than one about dance. Most require at least a high school education, and you will need a clean background check to work with kids.

    A career working for a summer camp will allow you to explore you passions, and introduce what you love to others. It is a career you can enjoy, and one you will be able to take pride in.
