What if my child becomes homesick?
We don’t have any problems with homesickness at Coppercreek. That is because we don’t believe that missing home is a sickness. Missing home is a perfectly normal part of growing up. For some adults, it is just part of being human. It’s not a sickness. It’s just missing home. So, we don’t deal with homesickness; we deal with missing home. We help our campers to face and understand how they feel. We tell them that it’s a very natural feeling, and that it’s OK. Most of the time, they come out of it. Once in a great while, a camper will really have a problem with it. If, after 24 hours, the camper is still missing home and not able to participate in camp activities because of it, we will call you and together decide what to do.
