Editorial Reviews

Bob Schultz
"Making the right choice is often a matter of asking the right questions. Summer Fun will take you on a journey that will lead to a safe, stimulating, and enjoyable experience." -Director of Development and Public Relations, American Camping Association
Library Journal
Borden, the author of Smart Start: The Parents' Complete Guide to Preschool Education (Facts on File, 1997) and In Addition to Tuition: The Parents' Survival Guide to Freshman Year of College (Facts on File, 1995), now addresses summer camps. As the subtitle indicates, this guide thoroughly covers all types of camps, providing information on how to choose a camp, prepare a child for camp, and keep in touch with a child away for the summer. It is more comprehensive than Adrienne Popper's Summer Camps and Teen Tours (1988. o.p.), the last title to address this topic fully, and it supplements the standard summer camp directories, Guide to ACA-Accredited Camps and Peterson's Summer Opportunities for Kids and Teenagers. It should answer the question "How do I choose a summer camp for my child?" Recommended for public libraries.--John J. McCormick, New Hampshire State Lib., Concord
