Nervous to go to Camp?
Camp - a childhood favorite! While camp can be an exciting time, new spaces, new peers and new schedules can create uncertainty for both parents and tiny peers. To help alleviate stress, address any specific nerves with intentional conversation. Often our tiny peer’s nerves can be eased by simple conversations on what to expect. Rather than “everyone goes to camp” or “you'll be fine, set aside time to assess what might be worrying your tiny peer. With clear expectations, we empower them to regulate emotions and embody confidence. For example, if your tiny peer is worried about being in a new space, find things to set them up for success. “When we get to camp, we can find the bathroom and snack area together.”
