Our 6th graders go on a 2 night trip to "outdoor ed" - parents are allowed to go as chaperones.
I am not worrying about it since I've just decided one of us will have to go as a chaperone so we are at least there if there is a need. I don't necessarily want to be in the same cabin or follow him around all day but the camp is far away so I'd like to be in the area.
Frankly I cannot imagine him being 11 years old and taking care of himself so I'm just speculating - LOL! Maybe I'll decide he'll be fine to go without the helicopter mom....
