Publisher's Summary

Audrey "Sunshine" Monke, mother of five and camp owner-director, shares nine powerful parenting techniques - inspired by the research-based practices of summer camp - to help kids thrive and families become closer. Research has proven that kids are happier and gain essential social and emotional skills at camp. A recognized parenting expert, Audrey Monke distills what she has learned from thousands of interactions with campers, camp counselors, and parents, and from her research in positive psychology, to offer intentional strategies parents can use to foster the benefits of camp at home. Our screen-obsessed, competitive society makes it harder than ever to raise happy, thriving kids. But there are tried-and-true methods that can help. Instead of rearing a generation of children who are overwhelmed, anxious, depressed, and who struggle to become independent, responsible adults, parents can create a culture that promotes the growth of important character traits and the social skills kids need for meaningful, successful lives.

Thousands of parents attest to the "magical" benefits of summer camp for their kids, noting their children return more joyful, positive, confident, and resilient after just a few weeks. But you can learn exactly what it takes to promote these benefits at home. Complete with specific ideas to implement the most effective summer camp secrets, Happy Campers is a one of a kind resource for raising happy, socially intelligent, successful kids.

New to Camping

Ever since the original “Parent Trap” I’ve always longed to be a camper. When my son was ten I had a prompting as he was playing little league baseball he should go to camp. I felt he needed the confidence. The adventure., after I plopped down my $4,000 fir two weeks of camp panic set in and I wasn’t sure I’d made the right decision. This book was my saving grace. I listened to it over and over a few times. I gained perspective and confidence on how I’d coach my son through this. Camp was not perfect. He had a few complaints but overwhelmingly fear I saw was a broadening if interests, skills and confidence. This book helped us get there.
