Opening Day Blues: Coping with Camper Homesickness.
Fleischner, David
Camping Magazine, v76 n3 p38-40,42 May-Jun 2003
Dealing with homesick campers can be challenging. Camper encouragement and counselor planning before camp starts is helpful. Upon arrival, don't dwell on the campers' homesickness. Help the camper connect--with older campers, a counselor, or a potential bunk-mate--and avoid free time. The first night is often the most difficult time; consult with supervisory staff if necessary.
