Tips on Trips and Camps: Summer Fair February 4, 2018


Think your kids would resist a month without his or her phone? Think again! Kids love going off the grid for the summer… or, at least, part of it. A good camp experience provides a natural antidote to the stress of the school year, and can set a child on the right path to self-discovery and personal growth.

Choosing from the vast landscape of overnight experiences is a daunting task – there are thousands of options, and it’s tricky to know who to trust. Tips on Trips and Camps is a free advisory service that has been helping parents provide their kids with happy summer experiences since 1971. The company’s team of 15 advisors offers information on over 600 of the best overnight camps and programs for 8 to 18 year olds: not only traditional and specialty camps, but also programs ranging from language immersion programs, outdoor adventure, teen travel, specialty arts, college campus enrichment, community service — and more.

Your child might enjoy a slightly off-the-beaten track experience, such as stretching their language skills by living with a Spanish family and interning at a local business in rural Spain, or living on a farm in Ireland run by a family of artists while building a portfolio. For some​,​ a perfect match might be spending time in Colorado ​on an outdoor adventure program that incorporates community service and participation in the traditions of Native American culture. For others, a berth on one of the traditional overseas adventures might be ideal.

Let Tips on Trips and Camps match your child’s needs with an age-appropriate experience by attending the 2018 Summer Opportunities Fair on Sunday, February 4, where you will learn about overnight camps and teen programs and meet their directors and representatives.

Parents who have used Tips and Trips are thrilled with the personal guidance, saying “Your service saved me an immense amount of time and pointed me to a camp that is a great fit for my kids and wasn’t even on my radar!” Another parent brought her would-be-campers to the fair and reported that “My kids had a blast attending and had no idea how many programs were available to them for the summer”.

The Summer Opportunities Fair is free.  No RSVP is necessary. If you can’t make the fair, get started on planning for this summer by contacting Jill Levin, the Tips on Trips LA Advisor at 310-202-8448 or
