Summer Camp for Introverts?
My child is a classic introvert and has hated all the camp experiences she has had so far. None of them seem to be geared toward quieter kids who need downtime, prefer small groups and structure, need time to warm up or facilitation with meeting other kids, have a group of kids going for multiple weeks, or a dedicated staff person who "knows" them. She is completing the first grade this year and is already stressed out about it. It's also challenging because the really awesome sounding camps I've found are expensive AND end after only 3/4 hours so I can't just "make it work, somehow". We've tried Studio One in Oakland, Steve & Kate's, and Trackers. I'm hoping not to deal with crying every morning this summer so can someone tell me there is a magical camp with a dedicated counselor per small group, is low-key, has longer multi week sessions that kids attend for, and lasts at least 6 hours per day. Or am I asking too much? Thanks!
