Kids’ Camps Aren’t Just for Summer!
Whoever thought of summer camps was, frankly, a genius. Giving our kids a safe place where they can get away with other kids their age for a week or two while us parents recover our frayed nerves… Let’s just say that summer camp is a blessing for everybody involved. Kids get to make friends, learn new skills, and enjoy the summer sun, while parents get the greatest gift in the world: a little bit of extra time to themselves.
A Camp-less Summer 2020
Okay, so, now that we are on the same page about how wonderful summer camps are, with the COVID pandemic, we also know most summer camps were canceled. That probably means you are in need of a break more than ever! Did you know there are kids’ camp options during the back-to-school year? They can be a great way to give your child fun things to do in the evenings, on weekends or during school holidays. These exciting learning experiences will help keep your kids entertained while making sure you have the free time you need to get important things done. Simply Google kids’ camps in your area and you will be surprised what you find. Recreation centers and libraries are a great place to start. Here are a few mini-camp ideas to search for.
Weekend Camps for Kids
Yes, that’s right. Weekend camps are available and they are growing in popularity. These camps are short, quick trips that take place over the course of one or two days, giving kids a taste of the typical camp experience. This can be a great option for kids who have never been to camp before and who might be too nervous to go on a full camping experience but would like to give it a try.
Weekend camps are also often found at museums and even at universities, where kids can learn valuable lessons and new skills such as coding or astronomy. This makes them a good choice for children who love to learn and who have special interests.
Longer Indoor Camping Options
Other camps are also available for the non-summer months. Since you can’t go camping outside as easily as in the summer months, there are indoor camps that teach valuable, new skills during the fall, winter and spring. A cooking camp can be a great choice for the child who has always had a keen interest in learning about creating delicious dishes. A gymnastics camp can be an amazing experience for any kid who loves tumbling and cheerleading (and one that will offer them plenty of exercise!) These can either be day camps or overnight camps.
Whatever camps you schedule for your child during the school year, using camp name labels can make sure everything that goes to camp with them comes home safely, from gym bags to laptops and more. Using camp labels that stick on is a good option for these short, quick trips because of their temporary nature–the labels peel right off when you are done. Of course, we don’t want to forget to mention these camp label packs are really cute and personalized!
