Making summer plans for your kids?
Summer camp is a definite must for every kid. The amount of skills and learning experiences kids gain from camp make it the number one thing to pencil into your calendar this summer.
The University of Waterloo conducted the Canadian Summer Camp Project to research the effects summer camp can have on children. They conducted the study over 17 resdential and day camps across Canada and ended up observing over 1200 campers. The summer camp staff were told to observe each of the camper’s progress in five areas and rate it at the beginning of the session and again at the end. Overall, the study showed that summer camp is a beneficial part of every child’s development.
Looking at the study and several other summer camp resources, we compiled the seven best reasons to send your child to summer camp.
