Teen Summer Program Consultants
TeenSource is the premier and uniquely personal summer camp and teen program consulting service dedicated to helping you find the best summer program for your child. Our knowledgeable staff, with years of experience placing teenagers in safe and enriching experiences, will make it easy for you to find the perfect summer program to fit your child's interests, whether it's community service programs, summer academic programs, teen tours and teen trips, teen adventure trips, summer internships and even gap year programs.
At TeenSource we meet with directors all year to learn about their programs. We research their companies and review their videos for highlights that will interest our teens. We learn about the kinds of experiences your child will have and the dates and prices. We also listen to our client families and their past summer experiences. As a result we have vast first-hand knowledge to pass along to parents.
TeenSource Camp Advisors can help you find the most enriching and rewarding summer programs for your teen.
We recommend that families begin investigating their summer options in the late fall and winter prior to their child's summer adventure. At this time, a TeenSource consultant will meet with you to discuss your child's goals for the summer. Does your teen want to go backpacking and kayaking though the mountains of Colorado or perform a community service project in Costa Rica? Maybe he wants to travel cross-country or go to France and speak the language first hand? Does she want to experience college living and take an SAT prep course? The opportunities are endless. We are here to help you sort them all out.
At TeenSource, we realize that sending your child away for the summer is not only an emotional commitment, but also a financial one. We take into consideration your time and budget. It takes effort for a family to find the program that best suits their child. We counsel parents on how best to explore all options before making a final decision. "The long, carefree summers between the high school years offer teens the chance to learn and experience things they may never have an opportunity to see again in their lives," explains TeenSource founder and president, Abby Shapiro. "That's why I feel it's so important for each child to get the most out of these precious summers."
