Here are 10 quick thoughts about the physical, mental, and emotional health improvements of summer camp:
1. Make New Friends: Camp provides the possibility to create friendships that may well serve you for a lifetime.
2. Explore the Outdoors: Camp gets kids off the couch, away from the computer and into a new, often outdoor environment that provides all sorts of benefits.
3. Get a Break in the Family: Camp allows the whole family to have a bit of some slack from one another. Kids are capable of understanding themselves in the new environment.
4. Downtime from Daily Routine: Our lives are full, full, full! Camp enables a break from the fast-paced lifestyles we’re all employed to. It is a great recuperative tool.
5. Improve Socialization Skills: Camps handle social media and life of their own, as every session provides for a new beginning. This is a great actual life, really putting on the social network.
6. Improve Communication Skills: Camps introduce new people in new situations, encouraging conversation and introduction skills. As camp develops kids move from an introductory phase with a supportive community, further developing communication skills.
7. Explore One’s Physicality: Adventure and outdoor-based camps create a new way of exercise for athletes and non-athletes alike. Outdoor sports challenge participants in a very different type of exercise, allowing kids to discover their bodies in a different motion and environment.
8. Personal Empowerment: Successful camp experiences allow kids to feel a feeling of accomplishment, and also this success comes in great shape, whether it’s social, athletic, or otherwise. Their self-awareness and self-confidence explode, empowering your children of their future endeavors.
9. Try Something New: Camp offers an array of new experiences. This quest for interesting things in new environments increases learning and growth, simply because the adrenaline, the focus, and the part of the unknown create powerful learning experiences that do not exist elsewhere.
10. Get Moving, Get Healthy: Hey, it’s a fact of life – we’re indoors increasingly more and we’re strapped to our electronics regardless if nobody is. Getting outdoors is plain good for you: good for mental performance, good for our bodies.
If it’s an option, say yes to summer camp! From our many years of running camps, the positive changes we have seen in your campers are simply amazing.
