Today you will find four basic types of summer camps available which one can settle for. They include; the day camps, the overnight camps also known as the sleep away camps, day programs with trips and the special needs camps. With the day camps, your child will be in the camp all day and at the end of the day they will have to return home. For those children who have never been out of the home for long and extensively stretched periods of time, the day camps are actually the best type of camps for them.
