Kids summer camping has always been a way to provide kids with a fun experience in the summer while giving parents some room to breathe. In this video, we look at some of the ways the summer camp experience benefits kids.
The simplest benefits for parents and kids are obvious.
Summer camp is fun! And parents can’t always supervise their children and work at the same time. Summer camp provides a steady stream of entertainment for kids and space for parents to work. The structure of summer camps also leads to friendships for kids, and learning from a range of adults.
According to psychologists, summer camps can help children’s development and growth by providing an enriching environment, where kids can explore activities and games that schools don’t have time for. Many kids have been isolated in recent years, and being surrounded by other kids and developing social skills and connections is a positive psychological experience.
Summer camp is a practical way to provide a great experience for kids during the summer, but it can also nourish them and help them grow into healthy and capable young adults.
