The benefits of summer camp

By Lisa Van de Ven 

It’s every parent’s concern: What’s the best way for your child to spend his or her free time during summer and school breaks? To some, it’s a time for children to play and have fun. For others, it’s an opportunity for kids to hone their studies or learn new subjects, from arts to architecture.


There’s a single destination that gets kids outside having fun, experts say, while teaching them lifelong skills. It’s called camp.

The benefits of camp are plenty, from life lessons beyond the classroom and the value of playtime to appreciating nature and building confidence and leadership skills. At camp, you can have your cake, flavoured with a mix of fun and learning, and eat it too.
