Five key benefits for kids and parents
Camp is a worthwhile investment for families, as kids gain richly from the experience. Here’s a look at the benefits of camp for both kids and parents.
Camp helps kids gain new skills and experiences. Summer day camps help kids develop skills during the summer and away from school. They expand and explore their interests and take part in a wide range of activities, everything from swimming to painting to sports like soccer and basketball.
It’s an ideal setting for new friendships. The free, fun setting makes it an ideal place for kids to find new friends with the same interests.
Camp fosters independence and deeper personal growth. At day camps in Brockville, kids spend time away from parents, teachers, and others. They need to take care of their own stuff, mind their time, work on their own projects, and more. Camp helps kids grow up faster, and—as we explore more fully on our site—they develop responsibility, resilience, and many other key characteristics.
Camp gives parents peace of mind. When kids are at day camp, parents know their kids are in a secure setting, they’re well taken care of, they’re learning, and they’re away from screens and gaming, etc.
Camp gives parents extra time. Summer can be a long eight weeks of trying to keep kids busy. Camp gives parents a break where they can focus on their own interests or spend time with other family members.
Seven things to look for in a good summer camp
Here’s a quick look at how to find the right summer camp for your family, using OurKids.net:
Activities that match your child’s interests and needs. Make sure you know what your child wants in a camp, and think about what will really stir their interest. Sure, kids have their preferences, but often, they discover things at camp that simply aren’t available in school. Check all the activities listed for each session, in the pages linked to above.
A schedule that matches your family’s needs. Consider the camp’s proximity to your home, and its pickup and drop off times. Is the camp activity schedule well-rounded and interesting to your child?
A good reputation. Use links above to research the camp's reputation, read reviews, and discover what other parents and kids say about the experience.
Well-qualified staff. Make sure to ask about the qualifications and experience of the camp staff, when you email or inquire about the camp through forms on pages linked to above.
A good safety record. Check the camp’s accreditation or other safety endorsements. If you see none make sure to inquire about safety measures used by the camp.
Reasonable cost. Consider the cost of the camp. Inquire about additional or hidden fees and costs.
Summer camps (and March break camps, etc.) offer many positive benefits.
