Summer is a time filled with fun activities with the family, relaxing, and enjoying trips. It’s easy to get caught up in the fun, and let the Summer slide kick in. The “Summer slide” is a time when children are not engaging in educational activities and lose a lot of what they learned in their previous educational year. This can prove detrimental to their upcoming educational year, where they will get behind on their education.
Summer camp is important, because it offers a structured opportunity for your child to grow and have new learning experiences. During the school year, children have the opportunity to go to extracurricular activities to learn new things. Whether that be a sport, musical instrument, or theater course, it supplements their learning environment. Summer camp is similar to these extracurricular activities, they help your child learn new skills, make new friends, and socialize.
Similarly, with Summer Camps, your child is able to participate in activities that wouldn’t normally be offered during the academic year. Similarly, students often attend school year after school year with the same peers, which can lead to labeling by their peers. Given the chance, children will break out of their supposed “label” and make new friends in a different environment.
Let’s face it, with the increase of technology, children have become more glued to phones and iPads. Now with more apps appealing to kids, such as “YouTube Kids,” it’s easy to just hand an iPad or phone to your kid and let them hang out for hours. With summer camp, your child will be engaged with teachers and other students, as well as their environment. It’s easy to get caught up in the digital world, especially nowadays. So having your child unplug at camp will help them value being around others.
