Every summer parents scramble to figure out how to keep their kids entertained and learning. For younger kids, it seems there are a wealth of day camps and other programs that are designed to educate and watch over kids in a safe environment. After elementary school, however, these programs disappear. That leaves a lot of middle schoolers without a safe place to go during the summer. Fortunately, summer camp for middle schoolers can be a great replacement.
What will my kids do at summer camp?
Camp Sonshine has a long history. Plenty of parents remember arts and crafts, canoeing, swimming, and making friends during their weeks at summer camp. Those same experiences are still available.
Middle school camp is more than just a safe place for kids to go during the summer. It’s a time that will teach them skills and lessons that will last for the rest of their lives. If your child has never been to camp before, this is a great way to get him or her to experience the outdoors and making new friends. Camp has a wide variety of fun activites, day trips, and overnighters to appeal to all types of kids.
What will my child learn at summer camp?
Each day will bring exciting activities for middle schoolers. Kids can try arts and crafts, sports, nature hikes, and so much more. Kids who have never camped before can try a program that allows them to sample a lot of different activities at camp, while more experienced campers can choose a program that will allow them to pursue a particular interest or hobby. Summer camp is a great time to try something new that your child just can’t get to do at home.
Finally, summer camp builds a sense of self-confidence in kids. As your child tries and succeeds at new activities, he or she will learn a lot about themselves and their capabilities. They’ll also forge new friendships that will last for the rest of their lives, and learn independence.
