Tips on trips and camps: Summer camp fair coming to Darien High School

Summer camps and programs fill up early in the year, months before summer programs actually start.

Tips on Trips and Camps, the free camp advisory service specializing in overnight camps, trips, and teen programs for students ages 8 to 18, announces opportunities for parents and children to preview available trips and summer camps for 2013.

The Overnight Camp and Trip Fair sponsored by Tips on Trips and Camps will be in the cafeteria at Darien High School on Saturday, Feb. 2, from 1 to 3:30.

Learn firsthand information about summer camps and teen programs. Meeting with program representatives and camp advisors is an excellent way to get an understanding of the culture and personalities of the camps or trips you are considering. The right match between camp and child makes for a successful and enjoyable experience.

A camp fair is an open window to get a good look at various areas of interest available in summer camp and teen programs.

Check out traditional sleep away camps, specialty camps that feature theatre and performing arts, community service opportunities, academic programs such as language immersion in the US and abroad, internships, as well as exciting programs like biking through Europe or surfing in Costa Rica, Wilderness Expeditions and Adventure camps for sailing, mountain climbing, scuba diving, white water rafting, and much more.

    We’d be there if only the date didn’t conflict with the winter meeting of our board of trustees. But Darien families have sent many current and past campers to the Vermont camps of The Aloha Foundation. Email or call us if you’d like to know more. We can probably refer you to folks in Darien who can tell you what it’s like for a girl, a boy or a whole family to spend part of a summer on a beautiful lake in Fairlee, Vermont.
