Summertime, and the ‘camping’ is easy… but is it safe?
This summer nearly 11 million children and young adults will head off to summer camp. Most will have a great time, but some may have problems. Sometimes, children have adjustment issues when they go away from home for the first time. Others may experience physical injuries that complicate their camp experience. What do parents need to know about getting their child ready for summer camp? How can they assure their child’s safety? Join me on this edition of Children’s on Quality as I ask these, and other questions to two experts from Nationwide Children’s Hospital: Amy Newmeyer MD, a developmental pediatrician, and Dawn Comstock Ph.D., an injury researcher.
