Kids can’t wait for that last bell to ring, ushering in the end of school and the beginning of summer. However, children and their parents quickly learn the summertime humdrum that awaits them isn’t as fun as everything they’ve dreamed of. When school’s in, kids are on regular schedules, have exciting things to talk about, and can easily make friends through social interactions. As soon as summer rolls around, everything seems to grind to a halt.
But it doesn’t have to!
Summer camps are an awesome way to fill the days when school’s not in session. Why? Let’s take a look!
1. Meet New Friends
School is a great place for children to socialize, but they see the same people day in and day out. Summer camps are comprised of kids from all over the place, which means your kiddo has tons of opportunities to meet other kids they wouldn’t otherwise interact with. It’s a great way to build their socialization skills and get them out of their comfort zone in a place that’s, well, comfortable.
2. Gain Self-Confidence
Summer camp isn’t about scholastics as much as it’s about just letting kids learn how to be themselves. When your child engages in new activities she’s never experienced before, she’ll gain self-confidence, which will translate well when it’s time to get back to the books in the fall.
3. Enjoy Summertime
If you’ve ever been subjected to the “Mom, I’m bored” song shortly after school ends, you know how important it is to keep your kiddo busy. Boredom can settle in pretty quickly when children aren’t on a regular schedule or don’t have something to look forward to. Thankfully, summer camps change the game and create an environment where they not only have something to do to keep them busy—they actually get excited about what’s in store.
4. Gain Independence
It probably wasn’t fun dropping your little one off on their first day of kindergarten, but you got through it. Now that they’re growing up, they need to learn new ways to be self-sufficient without you being there to hold their hand. Summer camps offer a great way for your child to build independence, get creative, and hone their listening skills.
