If you are looking for a summer camp for your child, the Better Business Bureau has come up with some tips that may make your choices a bit clearer. The safety, health and satisfaction of children should be the camp’s top priority, according to experts at the BBB. Investigator Bill Smith says when choosing a camp, parents should use the same care and common sense they would use in evaluating a day care program.
He says one tip parents might not think of is to ask their child their opinion.

Some camps, such as those organized around a particular sport, are highly structured and stress development of specific skills. Others are more flexible and give campers the opportunity to choose some of their activities. Smith says your child’s interest and personality should be your guide in choosing an appropriate program.
