Can Camp Counselors Out-Parent Parents?
June 1, 2012, by MCE

A great article Why Camp Counselors and Out-Parent Parents in the New York Times from author Michael Thompson talks about parents doing less and the role camp counselors play with kids at camp.

I often believe parents should do less, and should sometimes take themselves out of the picture, especially in the summer, when it’s easy to stop battling and turn some of the toughest parenting challenges over to 20- and 21-year-olds who can perform magic with their children.” – Michael Thompson

Thompson, author of Homesick and Happy, was the featured speaker recently at an MCE-sponsored event.

“I greatly enjoyed speaking with Laurie (Guide at Maine Camp Experience). Thanks to her guidance, ideas and suggestions we truly feel that our ultimate choice is the right one for us. We can trust that our seven year old daughter will have a wonderful summer!”
