Reflections From Camp Nazareth

Overcoming Home Sickness

Telling a homesick camper to stop being homesick can sometimes be like trying to stop a runaway train with nothing more than your words. Children who are sick for home often cannot help the way they feel and their resulting reactions. True, the effects of homesickness can be minimized while a child is at camp, but better still is some “preventative maintenance” that can be done before a child comes to camp and which helps them work through these completely normal feelings.

As a parent myself, I want my children to miss me when they are not at home. Hopefully they do. That’s a sign that they care for and love their mom and dad. But as a parent, I do not want those feelings to prevent them from being away from home, from having a good time when they are, or from growing up.

Below are a few tips to help we parents and our children minimize the effects of homesickness during a weeks stay at camp. Doing the things listed below will help your child to get the most out of their camp experience.

Dr. Christopher Thurber at UCLA has done extensive research in the area of children’s experience of homesickness. Read More >>
