I might but it would depend on whether he/she wanted to go, if I thought he/she was ready, how long the camp was and if I had thoroughly researched and visited the camp.

No, I'd be concerned about not being able to get to her quickly enough if there was an emergency.

 I think it really depends on how independent your child is. I don't think I'd send mine, simply b/c when they get nervous about a new situation, they want Mom close by (maybe not right at camp w/ them, but just a little drive away).

I would send my kid to camp in the state that is 15 minutes away, but not one that is 2,000 miles away.
