Letter-Writing Advice

You will find that many camp websites have advice for parents on how to write a letter to your camper.

  • For example, Camp Winnamocka in Arkadelphia, Arkansas advices parents to write letters that focus on the positive experience of the child, while appropriately acknowledging that you miss them.
  • The Whispering Pines Camp of Frederic Wisconsin advises parents to write thoughtful emails – one or two line emails are quickly disregarded by the camper.
  • Outside of New York City, Berkshire Hills Emanuel Camps reminds parents to send letters before campers go to camp so that letters will be waiting. See the section on Mail.
  • The Making Life Better website quotes the president of the American Camp Association, who encourages parents and children to write letters to each other because this is one of the opportunities to do so. The page also includes great advice on what to send your child in care packages.
  • Camp Hollymont of Asheville, North Carolina, tells parents to “Remember to write happy letters of encouragement and please do not use this as an opportunity to write about ‘bad news.’
  • The Summer Camp Advisor website advices that “Keeping in touch with your child begins even before she gets on the bus for camp and should continue the whole time that he or she is at camp.” Check out information on homesickness as well.
