    On counsellors and camp safety

    • Are children allowed to bring their own snacks or are those provided?
    • Are beverages or water readily available on hot days?
    • What are all the rules about snacks, food, water, etc?

    On legal and practical matters

    Benefits kids gain from camp

    There’s a good reason over a million families send their kids to camp in Canada, annually. There are many benefits, starting with the following:

    • Kids get out of the house and away from gaming and other mostly passive screen-based activities, and they get physically and socially active. 
    • They expand their comfort zone and their view of the world and they meet new kids from their city or even from further afield. 
    • They get to indulge in new activities and they get introduced to some they may never have encountered before. 
    • It keeps them occupied physically and intellectually in a safe, positive setting.   

    Beyond that, though, there are benefits that aren’t so immediately recognizable: 

    • Camp helps kids accelerate their growth in independence, responsibility, and leadership. 
    • Specific camps like sports camps, for example, help kids grow courage and  resilience, in addition to physical literacy and awareness. 
    • Other camps encourage kids to develop creativity, generosity, religious faith, self-regulation, interpersonal skills, and curiosity. 

    There are still other ways of looking at the benefits of camp. And while most parents associate camp with summer, you can also use our site to find after school programs and lessons that augment kids' learning, as can March break camps
