The best way to deal with homesickness is to actively prepare kampers prior to the week of Kamp.  Parents will be provided with tips for talking to their child about the Kamp experience. One of the best ways to manage homesickness is for parents and staff to reassure kampers that they will have an exciting week.  Parents may call the Kamp office regularly to talk with Kamp staff and find out how their child is doing.  In the event that a child truly needs to go home due to hoesickness, parents can arrange to pick them up anytime. (If a child goes home due to homesickness, they will not be able to return to Kamp during that Kamp session, but may return the following year) However, it’s more common for parent to miss their kampers. 8.  Where is Kay’s Kamp and what are the facilities like?
