Best Way to Find a Great Camp For Your Child? Attend the L.A. Camp Fair!
Parents searching for summer camps for their kids often find the ideal program in various ways. Referrals from friends or online searches on sites like LASummerCamps.com are useful methods.
But there's another way you may not have considered, and which you may find is actually the easiest and most convenient way of finding a camp: Attending a summer camp expo or camp fair.
Meet Staff from Over 50 Day Camps, Sleepaway Camps, and Every Other Kind of Camp all in One Place
What's a Camp Fair? It's basically just an expo for summer camps, just like ones other industry's have like wedding expos, tattoo expos, car shows, boat shows, etc. Except in this case, we're talking about an expo for summer camps and programs.
At least as a starting point, this can be one of the best ways to find a summer camp because all the programs are congregated in a single place to meet you.
You the opportunity to meet representatives from a wide variety of programs in person, get all you questions answered and, perhaps most importantly, decide how you feel about each camp personally since you will be meeting them face-to-face.
(Certainly you are looking for a camp with a staff you can trust. Finding a camp online or calling them on the phone can be perfectly fine ways of finding a great program, but these methods generally don't compare to meeting the staff in person like you can do at a Camp Fair.)
At the upcoming L.A. Camp Fair, over 60 camps will come together to exhibit their programs "under one roof."
They'll be stationed side-by-side in 10' x 10' booth-like settings, and you'll be able to walk up and down the aisles meeting all the camp vendors to see if their programs are the right fit for your child this summer.
Then you can follow up with each camp that interests you individually at a later time.
L.A. Camp Fair Encompasses 3 Dates, Events, and Locations
The 2018 Los Angeles Camp Fair is actually comprised of three separate events taking place at three different locations throughout greater Los Angeles.
Attending one, two, or all three L.A. Camp Fairs will help you find the ideal summer program for your child. With three different events available throughout greater L.A., you won't have to travel too far from home to find a great camp. Camps will be doing activities and demonstrations at their booths so you can get a "sneak peak" at all the fun you'll have at camp for summer 2018. Hope to see you there!
