“Typically, our camps all have themes,” said Corey Kirshenbaum, director of youth, sports and camp at the JCC. “For instance, one of the themes will be games. This would mean board games or any kind of sports. Preschoolers have their own themes because it is harder for the little kids to relate to some of the more complex things.
“We offer a full-day camp for all school-age children, and that really helps working parents. Kids who camp for a half-day at a specialized camp, such as dance, basketball or musical theater, can then join the other campers and have fun for the rest of the day.”

When you think of camps, there’s just about something for everyone: basketball, soccer, baseball, science, art. Ever thought about attending a writing camp?

Dr. Gregory Ramey, a child psychologist at Dayton Children’s Hospital, says he toughest part of his job is to create an environment where kids trust him enough to say what they really feel.
This isn’t easy, particularly with teens who are suspicious that a therapist will tell parents about their conversations. In some instances, psychologists are legally and ethically required to disclose personal information, such as when a youngster tells a counselor about being sexually abused.
When that trust is developed, teens finally let go of their defenses and deal with some issues that are really bothering them.
Here are three topics that teens have the most difficult time talking about in therapy…
