Communication

Parents will receive daily email updates with photos of the group’s activities from their child’s counselor to use as a conversation piece and develop experience sharing with their child. Counselors will also send home progress notes in the middle and at the end of the session. Progress notes will outline individual goals for each camper and highlight skills and strategies worked on throughout the summer.
