Resources for Camps

Help in Locating a Camp Opportunity

An experience at camp can be life changing, fostering quality bonds between peers and building resiliency in your child. According to the American Camping Association, "a quality camp experience provides children with the opportunity to learn powerful lessons in community, character-building, skill development, and healthy living."

When trying to decide on the right camp for your child, it is important to evaluate the needs of your child. To connect to a Military Connected Camp for your child, contact a CYSS Specialist listed on the Contact Page of the Camp Resources Handout. Consider his or her age, gender, their mental and physical development, as well as their desires and interests. Military children might express an interest in connecting more with other children, or they might have a great desire to learn one or more skills. It is important to talk with your child about the options available and get a sense of what they want out of a camp and what you, the parent, wants for them. Click on the link below to find a comprehensive guide to choosing the right camp.
