Wondering how to prepare your kids for camp this summer?

Don't forget to check out the March 2017 issue of Parenting NH, which features a special section containing articles and advice for parents, such as how to choose the best summer program, getting ready for camp, preparing kids for the first time away from home, what to pack and more.

If you can't grab a copy of the March issue ahead of time, we'll have plenty on hand at the Summer Camp and Program Expos.
