We invite you to join renowned psychologist Michael Thompson as he makes his first NYC appearance speaking about his new book, Homesick and Happy. Hear what he has to say about children’s experiences away from their parents, when they are at summer camps. Complete details are below.

“Every parent dreads letting children go. Partly, we dread it because we lack a clear roadmap of how and when to do it. Homesick and Happy changes that. It is a powerful and very accessible book that helps build maturity and resilience in our children—and also in parents, as well!” — Michael Gurian, author of The Wonder of Boys and The Wonder of Girls. This is a limited seating event.

The event is sponsored by the Maine Camp Experience group of camps, which Manitou is a proud member of.
