Questions to Ask Before Sending Your Child to an outdoor science Camp or institute

In order to make a more informed decision, it is important that you ask yourself these questions before sending your child to an outdoor Science Camp or Institute. This will give them an opportunity for adventure and growth while giving parents peace of mind when they return home at night knowing what kind of experience their child will have.

  1. What kind of food do you serve?
  2. What is the daily schedule like?
  3. How do you hire/train your staff?
  4. What happens when there is an argument at camp?
  5. What makes your science camp unique?
  6. What is the goal of your outdoor educational programs?
  7. What things did you learn last summer that will make science camp better this coming summer?
  8. What is the staff to camper ratio?
  9. How do you make your science camp accessible and inclusive?
  10. What are the cabins like? Will the counselors be the same gender as the campers? Or is this an all-inclusive outdoor education camp like Pali Institute, where their counselor’s cabin assignments are based on gender identification?
