Choosing the right modelling camp
What’s the best way to choose the right modelling camp for your child? First, think more seriously about them: their age, experience, interests, and goals.
Then, of course, you should look closely at camps themselves. Talk to directors and staff, and visit camps whenever possible. For instance, if it’s a camp focusing on makeup and hairstyling, you may ask the following questions:
- How do you teach these skills?
- Do you use a specific approach?
- How might these skills help my child?
- What careers might they provide a foundation for?
