School camps can provide children with a fun and safe environment to explore new interests and make new friends. However, before sending your child off to camp, there are a few things you should do to prepare them (and yourself). Please keep reading for our top tips.

1. Clear expectations of camp for your child

School camp can be an exciting but somewhat intimidating experience for you as parents and your children. There will undoubtedly be experiences that both you and your children weren't expecting, so it's essential to prepare your child as best you can beforehand. Talk with them about the new friends they'll meet, the activities they may do, and the independence they'll gain while away from home.

Reassure your child that it is normal to be a bit nervous initially, and remind them that you are always a phone call away if they have any problems or need advice.

2. Help them pack and label their belongings

Packing for school camp can be an exciting time for you and your children. But with the anticipation of packing comes the challenge of fitting everything into one suitcase or backpack. To ensure that your child's belongings are organised and well-labelled, you should get them involved in the packing process to help them become more familiar with where their items are stored.

Packing can be fun when you have your child practice sorting their things - it gives kids a sense of responsibility they can carry over even after school camp.

3. Brief your child about the camp's rules and expectations

To ensure the safety and well-being of all participants, you should go over the camp's rules and expectations with your children before going. This will help prevent any misunderstandings or issues down the line.

Every school camp has its guidelines regarding respectful behaviour, proper attire, tidiness, and more - you should take time to go over each one with your child, so they understand what is expected of them while at camp.

4. Ensure health and safety measures at camp

As parents, you prepare your children for school camp, and there are few things more important than ensuring they have all the necessary vaccinations and medical forms filled out.

It's also essential for you to give the teachers attending camp a list of any medications your child may need while away from home – prescribed or over the counter. Taking care of these simple steps will help keep your child safe during camp and make your mind rest a bit easier when sending them off for an exciting adventure.

Conclusion

School camps can be an excellent experience for children. Still, preparing them beforehand is essential so they know what to expect. By talking to your child about camp, packing their belongings and labelling everything with their name, going over the camp's rules and expectations, making sure they have all the necessary vaccinations and medical forms filled out, and having a practice run of getting up early and going to bed at a reasonable time, you can help ensure that they have a positive experience while away from home.
