10 "must-ask" questions to ask local camp directors

We asked area camp directors for their suggestions of what parents should ask before they sign their child up for camp. 

10 questions every parent should ask a camp director:

 1. Is the camp accredited?
 2. Does the camp have the American Camping Association stamp of approval?
 3. What are your hours of operation?


 
 4. How long have you been in operation?
 5. How are counselors hired?
 6. What is the turnover?


 7. Do you do background checks?
 8. Is there a medical person on staff?
 9. What happens in the event of an emergency?
10. What does a typical schedule look like?
