Sarah Cody shares tips when it comes to choosing the best summer camp for your child. She talks about how camp can help your kids develop important life skills and build confidence.

All week on Fox CT's Morning Extra, we are talking summer camp by looking at many issues surrounding this warm weather activity, such as:  how to choose the right camp for your child, when a kid is ready for overnight camp, financial aid and "camperships", camps for kids with special needs and unique camps in our area.

Here are some of the links I've referenced during my live reports...for your perusal.  Good luck finding just the right fit for your son or daughter!
