May 2016 - Looking for a Summer Camp? Choose Wisely


This school year is almost over. Can you believe it? And, if you haven’t made arrangements for your child’s summer, now’s the time. For many, that means choosing a summer camp or camps.

Today, you can find a camp to meet almost any interest your child has – sports (including golf), theater, science, math, music – the list is endless. Of course, the most important factor is your child’s safety.

To find a camp that gives you peace of mind, avoid the red flags. Here are some considerations:

  • Meet the director and staff: Watch their interaction with other children. Are they attentive and caring or do they brush kids off? Red flag: someone who is too attentive or expresses inappropriate interest in your child.

  • Discuss policies: A trustworthy facility will have written policies on hiring, background checks (for staff and volunteers), one-on-one interactions, and discipline. Red flag: a facility unwilling to share those policies upon request.

  • Consider the staff-to-child ratio: National guidelines recommend a ratio of 1-to-8 for children age 5, increasing to 1-to-15 for teenagers. Red flag: over-enrollment.

  • Read reviews: Check the Better Business Bureau ( to see if any complaints have been filed against the facility and, if so, the outcome. Talk to friends and neighbors whose children went there. Ask about counselor retention and percentage of returning campers. Red flag: a high turnover rate for either campers or counselors.

  • Look into training: Are all staff CPR and first aid certified? If a pool or other water is involved, what about lifeguards? Is a nurse or doctor on call? Red flag: insufficiently trained personnel.

  • Tour the facility: Look for a well-kept facility with sheltered areas for children to escape the sun or bad weather. Red flag: dirty facilities and broken equipment.

  • Explore transportation options: If field trips are on the agenda, ask how your child will be transported. Red flag: broken or missing seat belts and safety seats in transport vehicles.

These considerations can be applied to all childcare situations. Consider your options carefully. Wishing you and your family a fun – and safe – summer! – Victor Rotolo

What Our Clients are Saying

The absolute BEST!!! I have a family of attorneys but needed someone local. Victor was recommended to me and words cannot describe how pleased I was with his firm. The outstanding service and attention each member of his staff gave to me surpassed any and all expectations. Victor surrounds himself with a hardworking team that he leads. I felt it was money spent wisely. I will continue to recommend Victor and his associates.

Mr. Rotolo has helped me numerous times in legal matters and has continued to support and help me through countless hardships. He is dedicated to providing the best service and is a true professional. I will continue to consult with him regarding any legal issues in the future. He is a respectable, hardworking, kind hearted man and I would recommend his legal services to anyone.

- Matthew

I am an attorney and have practiced law for 26 years. I hired Vic to handle a very difficult family matter because I do not handle family law. Vic was extremely competent and obtained a result far beyond my expectations. Without his counsel my son's and family's life would have been changed forever. Thank you Vic for your good lawyering. I very much appreciate the personal attention and time dedicated to this matter. I highly recommend Vic.

- Anthony

We recently had a situation where we needed to hire an attorney. We selected Kearns Rotolo Law and I can honestly say that we were above and beyond satisfied with Vic and his team. We would absolutely recommend this firm to anyone should the need arise. We blindly picked the firm out of the phone book because I liked his ad. Now I believe that God was pointing us in the right direction. Thank you Vic and Kearns Rotolo Law for being there for us in our time of need.

- Kim

Victor's expertise, due diligence, and empathy for his client made my first experience with the law (and last) a non-stressful one. Before the case, I did my research and looked over about 20 lawyers before choosing Victor. All my sources pointed to him as the best and they weren't off even a bit. Victor treated my case like it was his own and kept me up to date with all my appointments, breakthroughs in the case, and guided me step through step in a process that I never thought that I had to come to endure. If Victor's not available Susy will go out of her way to take care you. The productivity and efficiency in that office is second to none. Thank you Victor!
