WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS SEPARATION ANXIETY?

This typically only happens when parents stick around.  Our staff is able to help every child overcome their fears and feel comfortable at our camps.

CAN I STICK AROUND?

we do not recommend this because of performance anxiety (and separation anxiety) and from experience with my own 2 little ones, kids thrive better and are more brave when parents are NOT around. If you choose to, we ask that you stay where the child can not see you unless you are taking photos of course :)  It is also disruptive to the program when kids are with their parents and not with our staff.
