Upcoming CIC Twitter Chats

Catalina Island Camps and Momfluential are hosting 3 twitter events over the next few weeks. Here’s the post from her blog .

Are you sending your kids to camp this summer? Are you considering camp for you kids? Hop on Twitter and let’s talk! Catalina Island Camp & I invite you to join us for three camp themed #CAMPChat conversations. Mark your calender for May 15 & 23rd at 10 am PST & May 29th at 8pm PST.

I will be sending all four of my kids to camps this summer. Three of them will be attending an overnight camp. For my almost 8 year old son, this will be his first sleep away summer camp experience. I’m thrilled for him to have the chance to attend Catalina Island Camps, a camp that reminds me in many ways of my own “classic” camp experience.

Making the decision to send kids to camp is one that many parents wring their hands over. Making the decision to send kids to an overnight camp, in particular can be a tough decision. But also an exciting one. Lifelong friendships are formed at camp. Lifeskills are learned. Opportunities to try new things and grow abound at camp!

Camp was such a vital part of my youth that I am really looking forward to co-hosting and promoting a multi-part chat on twitter about the joy of camp. I hope you’ll join me and share your experiences & questions as we discuss everything camp. We’ve assembled a team of experts: Camp owners, former camp counselors, Camping Association representative & Camp Outfitters who can share their thoughts on how to best choose, pack, plan and prepare for the summer camp experience.

We’re sharing some great prizes with our attendees too – stuff sure to make your camp experience even more fun. So curl up with some smores and login to you twitter accounts. #CampCHAT will be fun! All that is missing is the Bonfire.
