Did you know that over 11 million children and adults attend summer camp each year? But how do they know what camp to choose? Parents all over spend months researching and looking for the perfect residential camp for families in Florida. But no need to worry, here at Camp Merri-Mac, we have come up with a few tips to help with this process:


Residential or Day Camp?

The first question to ask is do you want a residential camp or day camp? Get your daughter in on the research and ask what they want to do. Our residential camp in North Carolina is perfect for families in Florida. Being farther away from home builds confidence and independence. It also allows girls to grow up in a safe and comfortable environment where they are still supervised by our fantastic residential camp staff.


What is offered?

Does your daughter have any specific interests that she would like to participate in at camp? Our residential camp activities have something for everyone. Art & crafts, team sports, swimming, kayaking, riding, outdoor adventures, and more! A day at residential camp is never boring and filled with new skills and memories.


How much does it cost?

Yes, residential camp is expensive. However, the benefits of residential camp are worth it. Besides all of the amazing memories and friends your daughter will make, she will come home at the end of the summer more independent and confident in herself. She will have spent the summer surrounded by people who are accepting and want to help her be the best she can be, and that is worth every single penny. Ask the camp if they offer any financial aid or scholarships. Don’t invest in a camp you aren’t completely in love with. Call the residential camp director and ask any questions you may have.
