separation and to avoid
painful partings at the
camp gate.
If the child has never
been to a particular
camp before, viewing
camp brochures and
videos can be helpful,
says Bob Ditter. "If the
child has a visual image
of what camp looks like,
it is less likely to be a
surprise."
Mr. Ditter also recom-
mends having the child
spend some overnights
with friends and grand-
P parents. Handled proper-
ly, these short away-
from-home experiences
enable children to feel
more self-reliant and
grown-up.
Zoe L. is the only girl
in her family of four, liv-
ing in a city neighbor-
hood that is home mostly
to adults and university
students. Moving into a
cabin with five strangers
owning different person-
alities and a variety of
quirks, Zoe learned to
accept and be accepted.
Learning to share, "to
enter the fray and
resolve conflicts," is,
according to Bob Ditter,
another essential lesson
of a good camp program.
Especially in the past
10 years, he continues,
"there is a real preoccu-
pation with individual
talents and individual
children. That's fine
except children are born
with an inflated sense of
themselves, and they
have to deal with that.
Camp helps modify"
pumped-up egos.
Camp inspires the
spirit of cooperation and
allows children to put
the demands on them-
selves and others into
perspective. "They get a
sense of what's impor-
tant and what's not
important," Mr. Ditter
says.
The feeling of being
part of something
greater than themselves
teaches children to co-
exist with others and to
be flexible. It's a lesson
that will hold them in
good stead as adults, in
both their personal life
and in jobs.
Children who learn
this lesson at camp have

erness that everybody has when the last days 4.1,
of camp arrive. It is the tears that roll down
saddened cheeks with the thoughts of the end
of a wonderful summer. We have become
family - that's what it's all about.
