Prep4 Makes Overnight Amazing!

Prep4Camp teaches kids and caregivers how to maximize their enjoyment of overnight camp. THe membership includes access to Summer Camp Success, the engaging, live-action video that features real campers and real counselors sharing their insider tips for packing, preparing, and preventing homesickness. It’s a must-see for kids and parents!

Did you know that 95% of boys and girls between the ages of 8 and 16 report some feelings of homesickness while away at camp? It’s normal to miss the things you love, but with Prep4Camp, it doesn’t have to hurt. The graph on this page shows that first-year campers who used Prep4Camp felt half as homesick, on average, compared to first-year campers who did not use Prep4Camp.
