Is Your Child Ready?

Is Your Child Ready for Sleepaway Camp?


Here are some questions to consider before enrolling your child:

  • Has your child spent a few nights away from home without much difficulty?
  • Is your child comfortable in nature?
  • Is your child capable of taking care of personal hygiene without significant assistance or complaints?
  • Is your child able to eat a varied diet?
  • Is your child excited to try new things and activities?
  • Are safety and instructional verbal instructions processed readily?
  • Is your child excited about coming to Surprise Lake Camp?
  • Are you ready to let them grow and learn? (If not, we have people who can help you!) 

If you have questions about your child's readiness, please don't hesitate to call us and speak with one of our Directors.  We are happy to assist you!
