The standard benefits of registering early for summer camp are pretty awesome: you save money AND you are more likely to snag a spot for the camp your kid loves most. But are those the only benefits? Here are three unexpected perks of early registration.
1. A Tick on the Summer Check-List
The Christmas season can bring with it a huge check-list of chores you need to get done, gifts to look for, cards to write and family gatherings to arrange. It’s often no different with summer! One of the best things about registering early for camp is that you can check one item off of that seemingly unending list.
2. A Chance to Reflect With Your Kids
What do your kids remember from the summer? What did God show them? What are they still thinking about? Registering early for summer camp can open the door for great conversations around what God has done in your kids’ lives since the summer and what he’s doing right now. You can talk about what they learned about who God is and how much he loves them. And that can help them enter into the Christmas season with a refreshed perspective on what Jesus’ arrival on earth really means.
3. An Opportunity to Pray
By registering early, you confirm your kid’s spot in their favourite program. With that info settled on, you can invite your kids to pray about next summer with you. Remind them what they told you was their favorite parts of camp last summer, and help teach them to pray for all that God might do when they return.
Registering early for camp doesn’t just come with the usual benefits. You can use it as an opportunity to reflect, pray and anticipate what’s next with your kids.
