Spending part of summer living independently from Mom and Dad is one of those amazing experiences that will stay with your child forever. Use our Camp & Program Guide to learn about some of the top sleepaway camp options throughout the United States as well as teen tours, educational programs and even community service opportunities. All of them will help your child gain valuable confidence, compile priceless memories and build lifelong friendships.
As a reminder, Westportmom’s very own, Melissa Post, is a camp advisor, and works with families (at no cost to them!) to find the right sleep-away camp options (or teen programs- travel, educational, adventure) for them. You can reach out to her anytime to discuss further at [email protected].
