Relevant questions to ask your Houston, Texas summer camp

Posted on 05-26-2014 | Glen Maxwell

Ipreschool_houston_tx.jpgf you have spent the last few weeks searching for a summer camp in Houston, Texas to keep your preschooler occupied and stimulated during the break, you can save yourself a lot of time and effort by knowing which questions to ask. Once you have assessed what sort of camp appeals to you and your child, you can make a final decision by getting in touch with the camp itself and ask the following questions.

What is the camper/counselor ratio?

This ratio determines the amount of individual attention and supervision children will receive during their time at camp. The more children there are per counselor, the less time they will have for each child.

What are the safety and medical procedures?

Knowing how the counselors and camp staff deal with possible medical crises and emergencies is crucial. Be sure to ask if First Aid, infection control, and emergency procedures are in place. If you have a child with a medical condition or if your child must take medication on a daily basis, you need to be sure that your child's medication will be given promptly at the proper time.

What is your camp's philosophy?

This question will help you determine if your child will thrive in a particular environment. Some camps focus on fostering competition, while others focus on exploring the world and developing cooperative learning. You need to understand the focus of each camp to be sure you choose one that suits your child.

How do you cope with separation anxiety in campers?

This is a crucial question to ask particularly if this will be your child's first time in a group setting. Find out if there are procedures to help a child adapt and feel comfortable. Ask how the camp deals with a stressed child. Camp program supervisors should give you advice for preparing your child for camp so that separation anxiety is reduced before arrival.

One way to build excitement for a nature themed camp is to visit the Houston Zoo to get them excited about nature and wildlife and learn what goes on behind the scenes in the "Vet for a Day" program!
