It’s January which means it’s time again for the Bucks County Camp Expo. Families can join representatives of camps for children of all ages in the Student Center Building at Delaware Valley University on January 19th from noon to 3 p.m.

Families attend a Bucks Camp Expo.

More than 50 camps will have tables with representatives to help guide parents and families making a decision for the summer.

Coordinator Ellen Warren says summer camps do exactly what people think they should.

“There was quantifiable data that reinforced, frankly, what camp people and educators have known for a hundred years,” Warren explained. “Camp builds life skills like resilience, independence, problem solving, and teamwork.”

Warren continued, saying websites, brochures, and virtual tours are nice. However, there is nothing better than speaking face to face with the camp director.

“There is simply no substitute for being able to have a conversation with a camp director,” Warren said. “Ask about your concerns if you child has issues. How do they handle disciplinary situations, what is a camp day like?”

Parents can also ask questions about how a camp manages kids with specific needs.

The Student Center Building is located at 700 E. Butler Ave in Doylestown. Anyone who has questions can give a call to 215-886-1666 or visit the Bucks County Camp Expo website.
