Five benefits of summer camps
Summer camp is a critical part of any childhood. At Our Kids, we feel that it gives kids an unfair advantage in life. Consider the following:
Camp gives kids a distinct edge in developing interpersonal skills. Kids who are shy at first find themselves speaking up. Kids who need a confidence boost find a supportive, fun setting, where they’re allowed to be themselves. Kids interact all day long, collaborate with each other, and overcome conflicts and challenges together. Many people look back on camp as the place where they came out of their shell. Learn about how kids grow in social skills at camp.
Kids grow in both personal responsibility and independence. They’re required to look after their own stuff. They make dozens of decisions every day and face the consequences without parents or anyone else to step in for them. Look closer at how camp helps kids develop responsibility and independence.
Camp also teaches deeper values like empathy and generosity. It’s a supportive environment where kids and teens make diverse new friends from other cultures, with unique values and beliefs.
Camp gets kids physically active and outdoors. You can’t look at your phone when you’re playing gaga ball. A typical camp offers dozens of different activities in a week, all of them F-U-N. Swimming and hiking are an integral part of summer camp. Kids learn to embrace physical activity, and their body essentially learns the joy of physicality. It’s a lesson that can last a lifetime.
Kids explore a wide array of interests, including many that are new to them. It’s ground for exploring areas that they may not be exposed to otherwise. (Rick Mercer shares how camp was instrumental in inspiring his career, for example.) Camp can be the place where kids discover career paths or lifelong interests.
Tips on choosing a North Bay camp
Choosing a camp will depend on your child's age, personality type, talents, and passions. Include your child in the process, so they can fully express their needs and interests. Ideas they come up with and final decisions you make together may surprise you. Research closely on our site to find out how to get exactly what you want.
Camp should focus on the activities your kids most enjoy or will benefit from. Use the filters in the list above to sort camps based on type, cost, age, etc.
Ask about camps’ safety and security measures. On the camp’s pages linked to above , you can use the contact form to ask questions. Inquire about protocols like staff police checks on staff and what kind of First Aid is available. You can also check the camp’s accreditation on those pages. Accreditation is a very good assurance that the camp meets specific guidelines. Learn more about accreditation associations.
Evaluate each camp’s reputation on your own. Find reviews for camps on the pages linked to above. They're a strong indicator of a great camp, especially the volume of reviews. You’ll also find our exclusive review of each camp. In these, we focus on the unique value offered by each camp. If you want more, ask the camp if any parents are willing to talk to you to share their experience.
