Parents send their kids to camp for a multitude of reasons.  Each has different hopes and dreams of what their child will come home with (besides a trunkful of dirty laundry). How do we understand -and manage- the ever-changing needs of today’s camp parents, while staying true to our campers and the camp culture. Respected parenting and youth development expert, Deborah Gilboa, MD, is the founder of AskDoctorG.com. Popularly known as Dr. G, her passion for raising kids with character makes her a favorite family physician, media personality, author, speaker and social influencer. Dr. G will moderate a panel of a diverse group of camp parents and offer commentary on managing (and meeting) expectations.
