Absolutely!! I will be attending my first camp this summer and my 3 children will be coming with me. My youngest, will be 7, a young 7, and he has expressed that he would like to stay with me. The camp seems very accomodating and said he could stay with me or in the cabin with the other kids. No pressure. As of now, they want an even trade for work & tuition but I'm trying for some
type of compensation. Time will tell...
Oh and I agree with the others, I think it's important to determine going into the situation if it's a suitable fit and you can handle 'working' with your child around. I have been fortunate to work in my children's school so they are used to seeing me and they know the importance of when I'm working. But as CoudySue & big al lpn said -- finding the right balance of loving your children but not hurting the other childrens feelings may pose a challenge. I'm a hugger -- I give every one a pat on the head or a side hug so they don't feel left out
but there does need to be balance. Also, I know I will have a hard time seeing them in a distance and not interacting as much as I'd like. Now, when the school day is over, we all go home together and have dinner and the evening together but camp will be completely different -- mostly for me!
Good luck -- let us know how you make out!!

I am very interested in doing camp nursing this summer, somewhere in the Blue Ridge Mountains! What should I expect in asking to bring my children with me. Should I even try and do my first summer nursing at a camp with my children present? Also does anyone know any camps that will let an almost 6 year old come? Thanks
