Sleep-away camp is a rite of passage for most kids and parents. Keep kids from getting homesick with these great tips from Alphamom. Make sure you send kids with plenty of stationary including pre-addressed envelopes. You might even try adding prompts in their note cards such as “Tell us your favorite thing you’ve done at camp so far…” to help avoid the inevitable “Camp is fun.” Alphamom also suggests sending goodies like candy and treats to share, or supplies for crafts like friendship bracelets or Madlib games. If your kids will have access to a computer, sending emails is obviously the quickest way to get in touch. You can even help them set up a private Twitter account so you can send and receive real-time updates on their adventures.
