Why Camp is Great for Children..

If you’ve been to camp, you know the positive effects that still matter to you as an adult, and you also know that you want the same experience for other children.  But if you didn’t go to camp as a child, you may not realize just how good the experience is for children. You may not know why so many parents are committed to sending their kids to camp. Here is a list of the most important reasons to send your child to camp.

At camp, children:

Spend their day being physically active – children spend so much time these days inside and mostly sitting down, camp provides a wonderful opportunity to move. Running, swimming, jumping, hiking, climbing! Camp is action!

Experience success and become more confident – Camp helps children build self-confidence and self-esteem. There’s accomplishment every day.  Camp teaches kids they can!

Gain resiliency – The kind of encouragement and nurture kids receive at camp makes it a great environment to endure setbacks, try new (and thereby maybe a little frightening) things, and see that improvement comes when you give something another try.  Camp helps conquer fears!
