Summer Camp: “The New Harvard” ?!

Saturday, March 30th, 2013

Such was the suggestion in a fascinating article in the New York Post. 

Some reasons?

  • Increased pressure to secure a slot early – before they are all gobbled up
  • The idea that specific theme camps will give kids “an edge” in terms of skill development
  • The perception that some camps are especially prestigious and may build up a kid’s “resume”

I have seen how camps – day camps in particular – fill up earlier and earlier each year.

So… the question for all you parents is … How do you deal with this? Do you get on it early and try to get summer camp booked in winter? Do you just roll with it and figure that you’ll figure out something? Or do you not even look into summer camp?
