If you’ve been to camp, you’re not surprised to hear about the benefits of summer camp. Experiencing life at camp yourself as a child, you know the profound positive effects that still matter to you as an adult, and you also know that you want the same thing for your own kids. Here at Foundations For Learning, a premier source for day care in Glastonbury, our summer camp program allows us to focus more adeptly on each student and his/her interests compared to other summer camp programs in the area that offer huge sport fields and a Disney World atmosphere. Today we’re going to look at a list of the most important reasons to send your kids to summer camp.
- Your child will make true friends who last a lifetime. Camp is the place where kids make their very best friends. Free from the social expectations pressuring them at school, camp encourages kids to relax and make friends easily.
- Your child will have the opportunity to connect or reconnect with nature. Camp is a wonderful antidote to “nature deficit disorder,” to the narrow experience of modern indoor life. Outdoor experience enriches kid’s perception of the world and supports healthy child development.
- Your child will learn valuable social skills. Coming to camp means joining a close-knit community where everyone must agree to cooperate and respect each other. When they live in a cabin with others, kids share chores, resolve disagreements, and see firsthand the importance of sincere communication.
