As the weather warms up and school lets out, parents are finding ways to keep their kids occupied during the summer months. And one way to get your kids out of the house is by getting your kids AWAY from the house. Summer camp is a great way to get your kids engaged in fun activities and making some lasting memories. But for a lot of kids, summer camp can be a really stressful experience -especially if this is one of their first experiences being away from home, alone. How your child responds to homesickness is crucial to their summer camp experience. John Jay Harris is a camp director for Clear Creek Summer Camp, an outdoor education camp that teaches kids about the importance and excitement of nature. With 67 years of education experience and decades spent at summer camp, he's here to tell us all about homesickness –how kids experience it and how you can help.
