A brief look at the value of kids' camps in Kingston
For people with any lingering reticence about camp, there are many benefits to going to camp, benefits that last a lifetime. Day camps and overnight kids's camps in Kingston offer advantages that are simply all too rare elsewhere. Here’s a quick look:
Kids get out of their comfort zone and learn new things. They are faced with new and unique challenges in a fun setting, where they develop confidence and soft skills including resiliency, independence and fortitude. Teamwork, co-operation, negotiation and interpersonal communication are all part and parcel of camp life.
They engage in unique physical activities that disrupt habits like screen dependency or just plain sitting around.
They encounter opportunities to develop leadership and deepen their understanding of the value of leadership and listening. Many activities in camp are team-oriented. Kids take leadership roles they might not otherwise have the opportunity to, or they deepen their appreciation for communication, in some situations.
They sharpen their mental acuity and encounter different means of learning. Camps that focus on education, such as STEM camps, kids' science camps, and writing and journalism camps excel at mental stimulation, but to one degree or another all camps are educational.
