SOME OF THE BENEFITS OF SUMMER DAY CAMP!
Fun Activities – Some camps offer sports, games, skits, drama, music, swimming, adventure, crafts, and much more.
Friendship – At camp children make new friends and renew familiar ones, often becoming friends for life.
Adventure – New experiences challenges campers to learn (age-appropriate) outdoor skills and thrills, in nature, through sports, arts, and other fun activities. More than that, they learn trust, self-confidence, and problem-solving in an affirming atmosphere.
Cooperation – Campers learn to play, work, and socialize with others whom may be different from them or unknowingly similar.
Responsibility – With encouragement, campers learn to do things for themselves and for others, and to see the results and rewards of their actions.
Appreciation – Opportunities are given to develop new interests and make a contribution to the group in a setting designed so each child can be successful.
Health – Campers eat well, enjoy wholesome outdoor activities, and learn to care for their physical, social, and emotional needs.
Independence – The separation really will be good for both the camper and their parent(s)/ caregiver(s). It gives them a chance to test what you’ve taught them, and learn from others. Plus, you’ll both enjoy the fun of their sharing exciting new experiences when they come home each day.
Summer camp is one of the best sources of emotional growth, learning, fun and adventure available to a young person during the summer vacation months.
