Camp Jitters

Program Description:

Does your child:

  • Experience anxiety about being away at camp (day-camp or sleepover camp)?
  • Worry about how they will get along with friends and counselors?
  • Express fears about what might happen if they get sick?
  • Share excessive concerns about being homesick?
  • Need constant reassurance that they will be okay while at camp?

Our panel of child psychologists is offering a free, 60-minute webinar and Q&A, discussing how to support your child’s anxiety as they prepare for and attend summer camp. We will discuss the use of principles from the SPACE (Supportive Parenting for Anxious Childhood Emotions) program, which is a parent-based program designed specifically to teach caregivers how best to respond to their children who struggle with anxiety. 

Being away from home can be a stressful experience, particularly for children with anxiety.  This webinar can give you the tools to prepare your child for a successful summer.

Join us as we unpack practical solutions and insights to support your child through their camp anxieties. Gain valuable tips on ways to:

  • understand your child’s concerns
  • navigate their anxiety
  • foster their resilience

Don’t miss this opportunity to empower yourself as a parent and ease your child’s camp jitters!
