Going away to camp is a big step for the entire family, particularly if this is the first experience. You can help your daughter most by talking with her and expressing your confidence about her ability to succeed at the new challenges camp will offer. Homesickness may occur. Our staff members are trained to work with homesick campers, and we usually cure the homesickness in a few days. One thing to keep in mind is that homesickness is completely normal. It will take some time to adjust to the new environment and routine.
