Face-to-Face: Building Relationships with Families
We talk to many families throughout the year trying to learn what they are looking for in a summer program. Some of these are our current families, and many are prospective campers and their parents. Since our campers come from all over the country, as well as a few internationals, many of these conversations are on the phone and by email. However, the most enjoyable ones are the face-to-face meetings.
Next weekend we’ll be holding information sessions in the Boston suburbs, specifically in Chestnut Hill and Danvers, Massachusetts. We do this several times a year, and we look forward to these face-to-face meetings with families. It’s always interesting to see the family dynamics and learn about the children and teens looking at our summer arts camp. There are so many summer programs for kids and teens, and it’s important to find the right fit for each child.
Maine Arts Camp is unique because we are a small, nurturing overnight camp with only about 115 campers per 2-week session. We are non-competitive, which means we have no team sports for one thing. That in itself is enough to attract many creative kids and teens. When kids walk into our information sessions to talk to us, see photos, and meet other potential campers, it’s not unusual for them to be a little shy. However, underneath it all, we can see them brimming with excitement over the prospect of doing so many creative summer activities at our camp.
While you might be gearing up for Thanksgiving at this point, keep in mind that summer rolls around before you know it! Â Now is the perfect time to shop for a summer program where your kids can make friends, build their self esteem, learn new activities and have fun! If you’re in the Boston area, please consider attending one of our information sessions. We’d love to meet you face-to-face!
