CAMP FOR GIRLS

Decatur, Michigan

(3 hours from Detroit)

Fine, private camping for your child



for details of our program, brochure, or personal interview:

661-1117 (evenings)

Shari Levin, representative

all ages, beginning at 21/2 and
going all the way through col-
lege.
How can I make a wise and
comfortable decision? Choose
a program suitable for your
child's • needs, interests and
maturity. Determine the
appropriate amount of time
your child needs to benefit
from his camp experience. In-
vestigate the degree of super-
vision, the ratio of campers.to
counselors, the training and
ages of counselors and staff.
Check the facilities, setting
and equipment. Examine the
camp philosophy regarding
camper goals, structure and
competition. Check the activi-
ties and amount of instruction
offered. Determine with your
child his priorities and inter-
ests. Discuss with your child
the importance of going with
friends.
Choose a program suitable
to your needs and budget.
Are your satisfied with the
degree of Jewish content or ob-
servance, the method of trans-
portation, the hours, days and
sessions offered, the location,
the fees? (Remember, the basic
fee doesn't always include day
camp overnights, lunch,
transportation, field trips or
overnight camp laundry, hor-

seback riding, store, trips,
transportation.)
Unfortunately, some chil-
dren are not as cooperative as
you'd like when it comes to
summer camp. My older son
never responds positively to
making summer decisions in
February. Whenever I show
him the camp brochures and
begin listing the terrific ac-
tivities, he stops me with his
stock summer camp speech:
"I'm not going to camp. I need
a rest. I'm tired of working.
They make you work at camp ;
too."
What if my child says he
won't go?
• Discuss his reasons and
needs. Let him be aware
of yours.
• Investigate alternate
camping options.
• Compromise on the
number of days, weeks or
session choice.
• Enlist the aid of your
child's enthusiastic
camper friends.
• Visit or view pictures of
the camp.
• Sign him up for late in the
summer and hope he'll be
ready to go anywhere by
then.
• Accept and respect his
refusal to go.

Gee, Ma!



The names are difficult to
pronounce and conjure up lost
Indian tribes. But for many
Detroit area children, they re-
present a home away from
home for eight weeks of the
summer.
While there are many over-
night camps to choose from
within. Michigan, some
families prefer sending their
children to camps in Maine,
Wisconsin, Minnesota, New
Jersey and Canada. Call it
snobbery, the search for the
ultimate camping experience,
or the continuing of a family
tradition. These families pro-
udly send off sons and daugh-
ters wearing T-shirts
emblazoned with Nebagamon,
Tamakwa, Marimeta, Bir-
chtrail, Arrowhon, Takajo,
Tapawingo, Wahanowin,

Ellyce Field spent her formative
summers hiking, canoeing,
sitting around camp fires and
attempting to water ski.

Modin and Thunderbird.
Talking to a camper family
is like going to a pep rally.
Each family is an enthusiastic
devotee of his camp. Their
camp has the most naturally
beautiful environment, offers
the best instruction for the
greatest variety of activities,
has the finest bunch of cam-
pers and the most dedicated
staff. Where can I apply?
There are several notewor-
thy differences distinguishing
most out-of-state camps from
those in Michigan. Most are
not co-ed. Nabagamon and
Takajo are all-boys camps.
Birchtrail, Tapawingo and
Marimeta are all-girls camps.
Thunderbird runs separate
girls and boys camps.
Many parents feel the all-
girls or all-boys feature is an
important advantage. One
mother, whose two daughters
have gone to Birchtrail for
three years, explains, "It is a
fabulous experience for the
