There you can also create a custom search in order to find camps based on your specific criteria, including sessions, fees, location, and camp type. It's good to start exploring camps about a year in advance, as some camps start accepting registrations in September. This will also provide the opportunity to visit the camp and see it in action the summer before you in- tend to enroll your camper. 2 ONCE YOU HONE IN ON A FEW CAMPS: Visit their websites to learn more about them and to view pictures and videos, and ask the camp to send you an information package. See if the camp has a Facebook page—it may reveal a lot about its culture and participants. Schedule a conversation with the camp director, and ask them for referrals to other families who have been to the camp, or check your own network for such leads to get first-hand insights about the camp.
