Woohoo! Summer camp is almost here! While summer camp is packed with fun activities, there are also so many great benefits of sending kids to camp! Here are 5 reasons you should be proud for sending your kid to summer camp!
1. They will gain Independence
This may be the first time your child has been away from you for an extended time. Although they will have their counselor to help them along, camp will help your child gain independence by being responsible for their needs.
2. Allowing them to get unplugged
Our kid are surrounded by technology. This is the one time of the year they can truly get unplugged from their phones and iPads out in nature!
3. Helps Them develop Social Skills
Camp may seem like all fun and games, but your kid will also be learning important life skills. Camp allows your child to befriend new people and work in teams with their cabin mates!
4. Helps them develop interests
Camp exposes kids to activities they might not have tried otherwise. It's not every day they get to experience canoeing, horseback riding or archery!
5. Giving them lifelong friends and memories
Camp doesn't actually end when they leave! Your child will make lifelong friends and memories at camp and be begging to go back again next year :)
