Hey, Camp Families!
We’re more than just camping gear here at Everything Summer Camp. Our goal is to provide you with everything your camper needs in order to get the most out of the summer camp experience. That means providing you with more than just camping gear. After all, we can’t sell you a healthy relationship with your kid or an immunization to homesickness.
But what we can do is give you tips and advice about how to achieve these desired intangibles.
We’ve teamed up with Dr. Chris Thurber, child psychologist and summer camp expert, to help us weigh in on ways to help your child feel comfortable about camp. Dr. Thurber—a father (and former summer camper/cabin leader) himself—imparts brilliant parenting tips to reinforce a genuine understanding between you and your child.
Alongside Mark Sieglaff, friend to Chris and Vice President of Everything Summer Camp, the two of them host the ‘Wiser Cracks’ webinar series which is co-produced by Everything Summer Camp as well as Expert Online Training, a company co-founded by Chris that imparts an excellent education to youth leaders.
Tune in on scheduled evenings for these engaging 30-minute discussions of realistic practical parenting tactics. These webinars teach you to read between the lines and see what your kid is really saying when they’re speaking the code. You’ll also learn valuable responses that soothe upset feelings and strengthen your connection.
