Have your boys ever gone to an overnight camp?

No they haven't, and I think I'd be reluctant to send them! The twins would probably be able to handle it better though, but still not for a couple of years.

My boys have never gone to sleep-away camp, and have never asked to.

Ben and Alex both go to overnight camp (weekend and for the week) with Scouts. The difference with that is they are with their friends and adults they know, one usually being DH when he is home. I have encouraged them to try the Operation Purple camps (for military kids) for the last couple summers but they haven't been too enthusiastic so we let it go. I think they would both do fine once they got there but I don't really push the issue either.

And Kristy, I went to my first week-long overnight camp when I was just 8yo and was doing 3 different ones each summer by the time I was 11yo. I loved camp and looked forward to all the things I got to do. Sometimes I wonder if I am babying them too much?
