Will my child feel left out if they are only in camp for a few weeks?
No way! New children enter camp throughout the summer all the time. We also serve campers that participate for one week, then take a week off and come back the following week. At the beginning of each week, there are special activities and icebreakers to excite the group dynamic. Every child will be included in activities and this is a great opportunity to meet new friends.
Does my child have to stay online for the whole day?
Participants are expected to participate during the live scheduled meetings. Look at the schedule sample in this FAQ section for specific times. If there is an occasion that your child cannot join, that is fine. You can always email the camp counselor and let them know that your child will not be able to connect. This way our counselors will make sure to address this when your child returns.
