Title: Why You Should Send Your Kindergartner to Summer Camp


1
Why You Should Send Your Kindergartner to Summer
Camp
2
Its almost summer and you may be debating
whether or not your kindergartner is ready to
head off to summer day camp with the big kids.
3
Though they may seem like babies still,
kindergartners are more than ready to spend
fun-filled days with playing games, making
colorful crafts and meeting lots of new friends.
4
Following are just a few of the reasons you may
want to consider packing your five- or six-year
old off to a local day camp for kids.
5
Cool School Preview
6
If your youngster hasnt yet headed off to
kindergarten, summer day camp can provide a
preview of the school year ahead and help him get
a head start on real school.
7
Like primary school, summer day camp has
structured days, rules, and lots of new
classmates.
8
Kids learn to organize their belongings, function
as a group and follow the leadership of adults
other than their parents.
9
Day camp also gets kids ready for being away from
mom and dad for a set period of time each day,
and with a high student-to-counselor ratio ..
10
... counselors have more time to entertain and
distract kids suffering from a bit of separation
anxiety than the average kindergarten teacher.
11
Getting In The Swim
12
Swimming is a lifelong skill that not only
provides hours of fun but also has a strong
safety component.
13
All kids should know the basics of the sport, and
many camps offer basic lessons along with
instruction in water and pool safety.
14
Your little one will learn to be safer at the
beach and pool while having a splash-tastic time
beating the heat.
15
Break Time
16
Keeping a rambunctious kindergartner entertained
all summer can be pretty exhausting, and camp
keeps kids safely and happily entertained during
the day.
17
Parents can tend to work, house projects or even
a new sibling, and then feel relaxed, refreshed
and ready to hear about the days adventures when
their camper comes home sweaty and happy at the
end of a busy day.
18
Souped-Up Social Skills
19
Packed with new friends and lots of ways to get
to know them, camp is a great place for
kindergartners to get used to meeting new kids
and getting along with other youngsters.
20
Counselors are skilled at helping children share,
play fair, take turns and treat others kindly,
skills that will come in handy as they enter
elementary school and all through life.
21
Kids learn to be more empathetic and helpful, and
the non-competitive activities give a real boost
to self-confidence.
22
Camp Lets Kids Be Kids
23
Traditional day camp gives little ones one of the
greatest gifts of all it lets them spend the
summer just being kids.
24
Camp is all about action and without television,
computers and other techy distractions, your
kindergartner can swing, jump, play, swim and
just get outside and run wild before the
structure and expectations of school take over.
25
At The End Of The Day
26
For many kids, one of the best things about day
camp is that they get to return home at the end
of a lively, frolicking day with lots of stories
to tell their family.
27
Theyll delight in describing how their team
finally won at Ga-Ga ball, the thrill of finally
jumping into the deep end of the pool or the cool
new friend they made at lunch.
28
Let your kids enjoy the experience of summer day
camp at Maplewood Summer Day Camp.
29
Experienced staff will keep your child both safe
and busy with arts and crafts, games, water
sports, gymnastics and more.
