Over the summer your child will be immersed in camp life that will improve their confidence and leadership skills, among a range of other benefits.

Advantages of attending a camp in Vancouver

Camps are designed to help kids and teens be themselves, explore their passions, and learn something new, all while having fun! Whether your child is excited to go to camp to improve their skills in something they already love, or to try something completely new, there’s a Vancouver camp that will fit your family’s needs.

A side-effect of learning to be yourself is learning to get along with others. In addition to helping campers develop confidence and independence, camps give kids and teens the opportunity to be social and learn about teamwork. When campers work together and have fun as a group, friendships blossom. In fact, life-long friendships are often a result of days spent bonding at camp.

Another advantage of camp is that kids and teens living in city landscapes such as the Metro Vancouver area get to experience the great outdoors. While many camps offer indoor programming or are based in studios or computer labs, most give campers the chance to get active. Goodbye nature deficit disorder!

Finding the right camp in Vancouver

Camps in Vancouver offer kids and teens as well as families, a wide range of activities that will keep them busy, active and learning new things. For most parents, the search for a specific activity or type of camp and a convenient location are foremost in mind when considering camps. As you look closer at your options, though, we at Our Kids think there are some other questions you should ask. The following is a brief glance:

Find out how the camp troubleshoots discipline problems. What training do counselors have in dealing with bullying or related issues? How does the camp actively promote healthy, positive interaction? ‘

Knowing your own children’s needs, how do those match up with the camp’s expectations. For example, if your children are prone to shyness, can they stick together with a sibling? What level of personal independence will be expected during participation throughout the camp? 

Be clear about special provisions required for your child, or expected by the camp. For example, do they have a policy concerning allergies or special diets that will affect what snacks your child is allowed to bring? If there are children in the camp with exceptional needs, does the camp have proper staff (like EAs or PSWs) to give proper attention to those kids?
