Ex camp counsellor here: agree with PP that he may have cheered up. Call CD and see if they've noticed anything. IME homesickness was contagious - one camper could really bring others down, so he could have just been around another kid who was sad. For what I saw, it was common in the early days and then they'd settle into it and have fun. Write back and acknowledge his feelings, but don't give into picking him up early. [ Reply | More ]

If you put down 6K that's the min. you will so put down a number less than 1001 for each kid's application. And don't say you pay anything for enrichment or vacation or cars or they will add that in too. [ Reply | More ]
