Plan Ahead for a Fun and Safe Summer At Camp
According to a news report on WSAV.com, parents should use care when planning activities for their children’s summer break. Summer camps are a popular choice for summer break activities for Georgia families, but not all camps are created equal. The Georgia Department of Early Care and Learning and Bright from the Start Georgia offer tips and advice for parents who are in the process of choosing where their kids will go to camp.
For example, parents should check each camp’s licensing and accreditations. Online tools like www.qualityrated.org can provide information about whether a camp is licensed or if it is exempt from licensing. Also, find out whether the camp conducts background searches on its staff. The education, experience, and training of camp staff all have an impact on the camp experience that they provide, so ask about those things, too. The Department even has people available and willing to help guide parents to summer camps that are a good fit for their children. Call 1-877-ALL-GA-KIDS (877-255-4254) Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m.-5 p.m.to find out more or take advantage of phone assistance before work by calling any time after 7 a.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays, or after work until 9 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays.
Since summer camp programs have limited capacities, many programs fill up months before their first campers are due to arrive. Begin looking for camps in early spring, and don’t forget to look into the possibility of securing financial aid. Summer camps can get expensive, but many programs offer discounts for siblings to attend together, sliding fee scales, scholarships, or other financial aid programs to help families attend their programs.
