ADVANTAGES OF SENDING YOUR CHILD TO AN OVERNIGHT
SUMMER CAMP

RAMPING UP SOCIAL SKILLS
7
  • Camp is a great place to improve social skills
    and to build self-confidence. Away from the
    social expectations of cliques at school or in
    the neighborhood

8
  • youngsters can branch out and learn how to meet
    new people and develop new friendships under the
    guidance of counselors who are well-trained in
    facilitating these social interactions.

9

    from different parts of the U.S. or even foreign
    countries

10
  • camp helps children learn how to bridge
    cultural gaps and develop a more global view of
    the world.

11
  • From sharing chores to pulling pranks and getting
    the hang of respecting other peoples space, camp
    invites youngsters to pull together as a new
    little community.

12
DEVELOPING NEW INTERESTS
13
  • Youngsters can learn a lot about themselves at
    summer camp. Particularly, since these lively
    months are brimming with opportunities to learn
    new skills, hone old ones and step outside their
    comfort zone.

14
  • Often children will hang back at school rather
    than try something new because they are afraid of
    failure or intimidating expectations.

15
  • At camp, however, everyones trying a new
    activity from art and singing to diving and
    sailing.

16
  • Better yet, counselors are trained to be
    encouraging and supportive of all efforts.

17
GETTING OUT IN NATURE
18
  • Mainly situated on lakes, and in the woodlands
    and mountains throughout the country, sleepaway
    camps immerse youngsters into the wonderful world
    of nature and wildlife helping them to discover a
    connection that for some will last a lifetime.

19
  • For campers from urban areas in particular, the
    magic of an owls hoot in the star-speckled
    darkness, the tug of a first fish on the line or
    just learning to forge a path

20
  • through the forest helps in the development of
    a love and respect for a beautiful world they
    might not otherwise be exposed to. Not to mention
    how healthy it is to breathe in all of that fresh
    air!

21
PROVIDING AVENUES FOR SAFE RISK-TAKING
22
  • Under the watchful eye of trained summer camp
    staff, kids can gain the confidence to take safe
    risks, whether diving into the deep end of the
    pool

23
  • swimming across the lake, braving the high
    ropes course or singing a solo at the evening
    campfire.

24
  • With these safe risk-taking opportunities,
    youngsters, especially those nearing adolescence,
    are less likely to seek more detrimental outlets
    for experimentation as they grow older.

25
PROMOTING RESILIENCE
26
  • Most kids, even the most outgoing and flexible,
    experience some homesickness, especially in their
    first summer away at camp.

27
  • Even those who are having fun with new friends
    and activities often report times of missing home
    and family.

28
  • However, most overcome this common malady with
    the help of counselors, friends and fun-filled
    activities

29
  • and its this process that helps youngsters
    build a strong foundation of resilience that will
    stand them in good stead throughout their lives.

    before are spending their summer vacation hanging
    around the house glued to various electronic
    devices.

    camp counselors.

    responsibilities without having to worry about
    what he or she is doing with all of their down
    time.
