How to Not Embarrass Your Children on Camp Visiting Day

Parents have been waiting for this date since the kids boarded the bus for overnight camp. Visiting Day is just a few days away and thousands of parents will head to camp to spend a few precious hours with their children at camp. It’s an exciting day for both parents and children, however, parents want to make sure they follow a few rules. Here are a few tips for a successful visiting day:

1. Leave the high heel shoes and jewelry behind – No need to dress like you are going to a party. Camp is a place to be comfortable and casual so leave the dressy clothes behind.

2. Limit the amount of food you bring – Your child has been surviving just fine on camp food. Leave the sushi platters, bags of junk food and food gift baskets behind. Most camps don’t allow campers to keep food overnight so all that food becomes wasteful.

3. Don’t be late – Your camper has been anxiously awaiting your arrival. Make sure to leave enough time so you arrive on time.

4. Don’t overdo it with the bunk gifts – Camp is about meaningful friendships, not whose parent can bring the coolest bunk gift. Forget the over the top bunk gifts and focus on getting to know the campers in your child’s bunk instead.

5. Leave the entourage behind – Visiting day is a chance to spend quality time with your child and to see all the awesome activities he is taking part in. Don’t bring every family member and close friend with you. Let extended family know you will share photos and videos with them when you are home.

No compelling reason to dress like you are setting off to a gathering. Camp is a spot to be agreeable and easygoing so abandon the dressy garments.
