The Road to the Right Camp
February 10, 2008 — A freelancer from Newton, MA, investigated ways of finding a summer camp. MySummerCamps.com was noted for its comprehensiveness. "A popular website is MySummerCamps.com, which lists more than 17,000 camps, including ones in Canada."
Camp Scholar, Dr. Christopher Thurber, was noted for his practical insight into making summer camp affordable.
"Find a camp that's best suited for your child and then figure out affordability. Many camps offer financial aid, or you can often barter for payment, like have your son play the bugle at reveille and taps for a discounted price," is Dr. Thurber's recommendation.
Dr. Thurber is the creator of Leadership Essentials a specialized online learning site where summer camp operators can pre-train incoming staff with uniquely designed video modules.
