Title: Developing Teamwork at Summer Camp

DEVELOPING
AT SUMMER CAMP

3
The power of teamwork is evident throughout each
day at summer camp as kids discover how working
with other campers enhances their experience.
4
Today, cultivating a team mindset in your child
is increasingly important since they will be
expected to work with others on group projects at
school and later in their career.
5
Playing sports during the school year goes a long
way toward helping your child develop the ability
to work as part of a team.
6
Summer camp offers a unique set of opportunities
for your child to develop an appreciation for the
beauty of teamwork.
7
RECOGNIZING AND LEARNINGTO USE INDIVIDUAL
DIFFERENCES
8
Kids come to summer camp with unique
personalities and skill sets that all contribute
to the team.
9
However, it takes time and experience for kids to
learn how to view individual differences as a
benefit for their team activities.
10
As kids practice and play sports together, they
learn how to identify each persons individual
strengths.
11
Then, they begin to practice applying what they
learned by encouraging each person to use their
strengths to help meet team goals.
12
Since every kid has something special to
contribute, everyone can stand out while still
maintaining a team mindset.
13
PROVIDING OPPORTUNITIES TO DEVELOP CONFIDENCE AND
LEADERSHIP
14
Being part of a team means working with others.
Yet, it takes true confidence to know how to
stand back and let someone else shine for the
sake of the team.
15
Every team also needs a leader who can help draw
out each persons abilities.
16
Summer camp programs allow every child to have an
opportunity to lead the group whether they are
hiking or planning a strategy to reach the top of
a rope course.
17
As kids participate in these types of team
challenges, they also develop the confidence to
continue striving toward improving their ability
to reach goals with the other campers.
18
PRACTICING TEAMWORK IN CHALLENGING SITUATIONS
19
It is not easy being on a team. At times,
conflicts arise that younger campers may not know
how to handle.
20
This is the reason every team activity at camp
includes support from a staff member or older
camper. They can help kids develop
problem-solving skills.
21
Whether two members of a team disagree about how
to proceed during a soccer game, or the whole
group is confused about how to navigate around a
difficult whitewater rafting course
22
it is only through working out these challenges
that kids can develop even stronger abilities to
work with other kids.
23
ENJOYING THE BENEFITS OF LEARNING TO WORK AS A
TEAM
24
Working as a team means sharing the load of
responsibility. It also allows kids to learn
from each other.
25
For instance, playing on a basketball team can
help a kid refine their individual skills at
shooting a basket by watching what the other
members of their group do.
26
Teamwork also teaches kids positive communication
skills, and having the support of their teammates
encourages kids to strive toward higher
achievements.
27
At camp, kids are always encouraged to adopt a
team mindset. This allows them to thrive as
individuals while also learning how to work
together with others.
28
Whether competing in a sports competition with a
rival camp or gathering around the campfire to
sing songs
29
learning how to work with others in their group
is just another perk of spending the summer at
camp.
