Sponsored: Can Young Children Go To Sleep-Away camp? It Depends . . .

Campus Kids Weekday Sleep-Away Camp

From the directors of Campus Kids Weekday Sleep-Away Camp on the rural campus of Blair Academy


Here’s what we have learned about young children (ages 7 to 9) who attend sleep-away camp.

  • Younger kids need counselors who meet their needs: plenty of energy and imagination, lots of attention, nurturing, playfulness – along with the ability to create and maintain the right amount of structure.
  • They need a younger kid schedule rather than one that makes them keep up with the older kids.
  • They like to try out lots of different types of activities more than spending extended time on intense skill development.
  • They love being around older campers (at least sometimes) who are friendly to them.

Some children are ready at this age for sleep-away camp, others are not. But if your young child is asking to to go camp, there are many camps that can meet his/her needs. Ask questions that will help you understand whether the camp culture is well-suited for your younger camper.
