Good Old Fashioned Face-to-Face Conversation: why Camp Fairs are making a comeback.

Camp Fair 1We’ve been doing the summer camp fair circuit for a very long time. As seasoned pros, we’ve found that the following information could be useful to you in your summer camp quest!

IT’S EASY…THE CAMPS COME TO YOU!

Camp fairs allow you to meet hundreds of summer camp staff members of camps from New York, Boston, Burlington, Philadelphia, New Jersey, and Connecticut.  It’s a great way to explore dozens of options for summer programming for your child.  Attending summer camp fairs differs from doing all your summer camp research online in the fact that you get to personally meet the staff, ask specific questions you may have, and start to get a feel for the summer camps you’re considering sending your child to.  You can also get coupons for a TUITION DISCOUNT by coming to a Camp Fair!

Summer camp fairs differ in size, but normally there are about forty booths showcasing camps, with friendly summer camp representatives positioned at each table.  Pick up a program booklet when you walk in and take a few minutes to study it, that way you can get an idea of which camps you might want to talk to the most!  Summer camp fairs are normally a few hours in length.  You don’t have to show up at the very start, or stay to the very end…you can pick a time that suits you and fits into your busy schedule!  But definitely take your time browsing and be sure to ask all the questions you want to:  that’s what camp fairs are for!

Camp fairs are a great way to get your child invested in the summer camp selection process. Bringing your child to summer camp fairs allows them to ask questions about things that are important to them, and it may offer you insight into hidden interests and aspirations that may not be on your radar!

CAMP FAIRS ARE FREE!

Summer camp research couldn’t be any easier.  You don’t have to make a reservation in order to attend summer camp fairs, either.  However, it’s a good idea to research the summer camp fairs you’re interested in attending and checking out the list of the participating camps.  That way, you can maximize your time once you get there and visit your “must-sees”.  You’ll be surprised how quickly time flies when you start talking to a representative about summer camp, so it’s a good idea to work out a “go-see” plan beforehand.

IT’S JUST ONE OF THE MANY WAYS TO MEET CAMP STAFF IN PERSON.

Every year, we host several Open House events throughout the Northeastern United States.  Keep an eye on our Camp Fair and Open House schedule, as we constantly add new events.  If those dates don’t work for you, we’re happy to pay you a visit at home!  Simply contact us to schedule a visit at a time that suits you and your family.

If you’ll be in the Adirondack Region, we would love to give you a tour of our summer camp!  Give us a call or email us to schedule a camp tour today!
