When parents send their kids off to summer camp, they presume they’re safe. There are people, there are counselors that are supposed to watch over their children. Before you send your child off to summer camp, call the camp. Investigate the camp. Talk to neighbors, friends and family who have children that have attended the camp. Ask if the camp counselors have had background checks. Make sure there are no bad people working at the camp. Do research on the camp. Have there been any safety problems at the camp? Are the counselors reliable? Do they care about safety? What do they do in order to safeguard the children? Do they monitor them on trips? Where are they allowed to stay? What are the accommodations? Visit the camp. Interview the counselors. For more information, you can contact Colson Hicks Eidson at our website,
