The Best Summer Resident Camp

Best Resident Camps .com
Version 6.1

Our 2023-24 Guide to Choosing the Best Summer Resident Camp is a great resource for parents and campers, and includes useful advice and inside tips on asking the important resident summer camp questions, such as: resident camp scholarships and financial aid, camp locations, camp weather, camp history, camp facilities, camp staff experience, special camp programs, camp certifications and awards, camper testimonials, camp parent testimonials, camp budgets, and much more.

We are currently updating and adding to our 2023-24 Resident Summer Camp Guide information daily, so please check back often.

Resident Camp... Ten Good Reasons: Be sure to check out our new article Top Ten Reasons to Go To Resident Camp in 2023-24.

Many Summer Resident Camps for Teens offer some very advanced, immersive or even 'intensive' programs. It is always a good idea to talk to each camp you are interested in SPECIFICALLY about the 'intensity' of the programming, so you know exactly what to expect.

International Resident Summer Camp Parents & Campers: There is a special section in our Summer Resident Camp Guide with info and advice for International Campers and Parents (from outside the US and Canada) who would like to attend a US or Canadian summer resident camp. Please read-on for more info below.

What do you want from your Resident Summer Camp experience? This is the question you have to ask BEFORE you set out to choose the best summer camp for you (your son or daughter). Do you want this to be a learning adventure, a character building experience, something physically challenging, skill building, or that's just plain summer fun? Maybe you're looking for a camp that satisfies more than one of these? Ask -- you might be surprised at the answers.

START WITH THE CAMP WEBSITE: Almost every resident camp has its own website, or at least a dedicated web page on a larger site (like a city's website). You should be able to find a lot of useful camp program information there, including all the camp's location and contact info. As you read you will think of some quesitons -- write them down, or send yourself a text/email so you won't lose them.

Nowadays, a camp could also have an official Facebook page, or several 'unofficial' ones put up by previous campers. These would be good sources for testimonials and comments.

CALL THE CAMP: Create a list of questions you really need answered, that were not answered by the camp website. Then call the camp -- yes even in the era of 'live chatting' and email forms, you should really try to talk to someone 'personally.' Some camp's have year-round staff, but many don't. Leave a message for a call back or call the camp again until you can speak to someone in person. Skype is a great idea, too -- if the camp can do that. What's your impression? Is this going to be a friendly, professional experience? First impressions matter. Ask if there is a previous camp parent/camper you could talk to (or email) as a reference.

CAMP LOCATION: It's easy nowadays to check out a camp's location using GoogleMaps or other mapping programs. This will give you an actual view of the camp and it's surrounding area. How close is that lake? What's that strange building? Is that an airport right next to the camp?

CAMP WEATHER: Go to weather.com and enter the camp's location. Enter the target summer dates and check out the average temps, how many days of rain, storm history, etc. Is this the kind of weather you were hoping for? How about pollen or mold allergies?

VEGETATION/POLLEN/MOLD ALLERGIES: If you (your camper) has them, you should find out about the surrounding vegetation AND the natural occurance of mold.

CAMP HISTORY: History is important, but it's not everything. Remember, the best camps ALL had their very first season. You should be able to get this info from the camp website, but if not -- just ask.

CAMP FACILITIES: All camps are not the same (no, duh?) -- some are intentionally rustic and wilderness oriented, some are very high-tech and modern with resort-level creature comforts. Sometimes it's a good idea to expand a camper's 'acceptable' comfort level -- but you have to make sure your camper will also ENJOY the experience.

If you are considering a special interest camp, it is a good idea to check on any specialized facilities and equipment they use for instruction.

RESIDENT CAMP SCHOLARSHIPS, FINANCIAL AID & 'CAMPERSHIPS': Many camps now offer full or partial 'camperships' or some form of financial aid to deserving campers and their families. Sometimes these programs are not listed prominently on the camp's website or printed materials, so it is always a good idea to ask. Furthermore, there are several 'independent' philanthropic groups that offer financial aid for summer campers, including campers with special needs. Try a simple Google search for "Summer Camp Scholarships".

INTERNATIONAL RESIDENT CAMPERS: Many US and Canadian summer resident camps now accept International Campers, and many also have International Camp Counselors and Staff. Parents should contact each camp they are interested in to see first if they can accept campers from outside the US or Canada, and secondly if they offer any special programming, travel planning, or other acommodations for international campers. Be sure to ask if the camp has experience hosting foreign language speaking campers, and if you can contact the parents of some of their previous international campers for references and advice. If the camp you choose does offer options for international campers, your next step should be to contact your home country's tourist or foreign travel bureau to find out EXACTLY what will be required legally.

SPECIAL NEEDS CAMPERS: Many summer camps now offer programs for special needs campers. Parents need to talk with each camp IN DEPTH to make sure they offer exactly the right program, staff and facilities for their special needs camper.

CAMP SAFETY: It is always a good idea to ask about a camp's safety programs and serious camper injury record. Are counselors certified (or trained) in CPR and basic first aid? What happens if a camper is injured or becomes seriously ill? Is there a Camp Nurse or a local 'on-call' doctor available?

RESIDENT CAMP STAFF AND THEIR EXPERIENCE:You should always check on the CAMPING experience level of those who will be directly in charge of your camp age group or special interest program. In the case of special interest camps, it is a good idea to ask if the teaching staff have experience with camping AS WELL AS whatever their special interest areas might be.

Summer Camp Experience is different from teaching experience -- just because someone might teach computers and technology, that does not mean they would be a good fit as a computer or technology camp counselor. You should also ask about background checks, and if staff are trained in basic personal safety and first aid. Ask if there is a Camp Nurse and what their experience/credentials are.

Best Prices on All Resident Summer Camp Clothing and Gear

CAMP FOOD: The quality and taste of camp food is very important, so be sure to ask about it. Is it nutritious? Is it fresh? Is it Kosher? Are there 'hot' meals and how often? Can the camp handle any special nutritional needs, food allergies, etc?

SPECIAL RESIDENT CAMP PROGRAMS: These special events and programs make the best camps unique and memorable. Some camps are 'famous' with previous campers for their special canoe-trip overnights, inter-camp sporting contests, staff variety shows, live 'campNews' broadcasts, parent days, all-camp musicals, backwards days, midnight ice cream dances, star-gazing parties, or cabin swaps -- just to name a few. Find out if the camp(s) you are considering have any special programs like the above.

RESIDENT CAMP CERTIFICATIONS & AWARDS: Is the camp 'accredited' with the ACA? Has the camp received any special recognition or won any awards? Are any counselors Red Cross certified in CPR?

A TYPICAL CAMP DAY: Find out what a typical day is like at camp. Get a sense for how much structured activity vs. 'FREE TIME' there is over the course of the entire day (and evening, if it's a resident camp). How much interaction between groups is there? When are meals? What happens on the weekends? Are there religious services?

PREVIOUS CAMPER & CAMP PARENT TESTIMONIALS: The camp website (and Facebook page) might have a page where previous campers and parents have given their camp 'reviews' and testimonials. These are typically ALL positive -- so don't be afraid to ask if you can speak to (or email) a previous parent or camper as a reference.

WHAT TO BRING TO SUMMER CAMP: It is always best to find out EXACTLY what campers are expectied to bring, and NOT bring to camp. Most camps have downloadable lists on their camp websites of "what to bring to summer camp."

For instance, many summer camps now allow eReaders & tablets, such as Kindles since they have amazing battery life and are less bulky than books. If your camp allows digital cameras, we would suggest one that also shoots video and is waterproof -- yes, they exist and they are not that expensive.

We have put a cool collection of summer camp items you might not have thought of on our new The Best Resident Camps Official Camp Store page if you want to check it out.

FINAL THOUGHTS: Planning a great summer resident camp experience, is like planning a great vacation -- the more effort you can put into the planning, the better it will be. Summer Camp can be one of the most personally rewarding and fondly remembered experiences in anyone's life. Choosing the "Best Camp" for you (or your camper) is all about asking the right questions of the camp, and listening closely to the answers.
