Harris, Rothenberg International, LLC, Teams Up With American
Camp Association® to Provide Helpful Camp Self-Search Tools and
Expert Content on the Camp Experience
New York, NY, August 2, 2007 — Today's working parents need
tools to help with important decisions about their children's activities and care,
and assistance with finding the right summer camp is top on the list. They also
have an urgent need to find high quality summer care options. Whether parents are
looking for a day camp program to provide coverage for the whole summer, or a specialty
residential camp, they want to make sure that their children are engaged in a safe,
nurturing environment that supports growth and learning.
There are many issues to be considered when choosing a summer camp, including schedule,
location, affordability, appropriateness of activities and setting, as well as safety
and overall quality. In addition, camps can fill up, and busy parents can miss deadlines.
These issues often cause unneeded stress and anxiety. And stressed and anxious parents
can be unproductive at work and, without a summer care plan, can be increasingly
absent over the summer.
To help take this stress off working parents-and make them more productive-Harris,
Rothenberg International (HRI), LLC, a global performance management company, has
recently announced its partnership with the American Camp Association (ACA) to provide
user-friendly, self-search summer camp tools and expert content for parents and
children about the camp experience. ACA helps parents find the best camp for their
children quickly and efficiently.
ACA's family-dedicated website, www.CampParents.org, is geared toward both the parent
and the child and offers information on all types of camp programs for children
and teens within the United States. Parents will appreciate the tips and tools for
evaluating and selecting summer camps. Parents can also search for programs devoted
to children with special needs. And ACA now offers a free new electronic newsletter,
CAMP e-News, featuring timely information on the camp experience. "ACA is a great
resource for finding appropriate camps that meet high standards of quality and safety,"
says Annette Balnarine, HRI's Work/Life Manager. ACA is the only national association
that accredits camps, using up to 300 standards.
