If you’re not sure why summer camp is a great idea for your son, then you should read on. I would probably be right if I guessed you never went to summer camp yourself as a child, or if you did, it wasn’t a very good summer camp. Otherwise, you would know that camp is where you have the best time of your life.
Camp memories never go away. Aside from all the fun from playing and participating in exciting activities, camp is unique in that it’s one of the few times to experience being with lots of other kids every day and every night. All that time being together at a summer camp creates bonds that come about by learning and doing things together, and really there is no other experience like it. There is often no other time in a person’s life to be with friends for an extended amount of time like camp. At summer camp there is no pressure to perform, be liked, or act a certain way.
Summer camp also fosters independence because your son will get to think for himself and make a lot of his own decisions. Camp offers an opportunity to refresh and recharge for life when summer is done and freedom is more limited.
There are so many things that are great about summer camp. Probably the most valuable thing about summer camp is the special attention and support that’s available to kids that go there. It’s one of the few places your son can get encouragement, not only from counselors but from peers. A summer spent being around stress free challenges with cheers from peers can do so much to help a kid feel successful and confident. For a kid to feel proud of what they’ve accomplished and achieved at camp while being acknowledged and respected by their friends makes for a happier more confident kid that’s coming home to you.
