Camps for Kids
An Age-by-Age Guide
General Age Guidelines
Individual camps will provide their own age minimums and maximums. Take these recommendations seriously. Good camps do not set these ages casually, but with a carefully planned agenda suited to each age group. Talk to the directors of camps that spark your interest. Ask them how they set their age agendas. Get answers that make sense to you.
If your child is at a borderline age, consider his or her personal requirements. Does your child need more individual attention? If so, perhaps you should go with the younger set. Does your child relish challenges and behave well with older kids? Let him take on the challenge of the older group. When in doubt, again, you will find the camp directors to be an invaluable resource. They want a good fit as much as you do.
