I am sending my 7 year old daughter and twin 8 year olds to camp for 6 weeks this summer in New York. They are really excited about it because this summer we have to miss out on our family holiday abroad because of their brothers health issues. I will go up every 3 weeks to see them on parents day. However, more than one person on here and in real life think they are too young to be away from home that long, and that somehow makes me a cold and uncaring mother that I am sending them away for so long.
What age would you allow your kids go to sleepaway camp for the summer, and how long would you allow them to go for?
