Summer Camp — The Bump

Summer Camp

I have been debating about whether to place my 4 year old in two different summer camps this summer.  I found a summer camp for him that is half-day during the month of June near my house. It only lasts for the month of June. In July, I would like to place him in a two week camp at the school that I hope he will attend for elementary.  He also may be starting a new pre-k program in the fall. Is this too much transition for him at one time? My concern is about the two different summer camps and the new school in the fall...

  • I agree it really depends on the child. If your son is easy to warm up and happy with change I think it sounds fun. If not I would probably just do 1 camp.
  • Totally depends on the camp and your child.  Are they just general day camps where they do a little bit of a variety of things each day or is the camp for a specific thing like a sports camp, art camp, etc?  How long is camp?  Has your c
