Summer campers often report having a blast at their annual summer programs. But if you haven’t been to a summer camp before, you might not fully appreciate all the benefits of this type of experience. Here are four reasons why summer camp is great for kids.

  • They learn social skills. Summer camp tends to be more casual that the formal academic year experience, so campers have a chance to socialize more and engage with their peers. By making new friends and bonding over shared experiences, summer camp allows students to learn how to communicate with others.
  • They gain confidence. When kids learn new things, meet new people, and spend time away from home, they tend to become more confident in themselves and their abilities.
  • They unplug from technology. Summer camp typically has structured schedules that keep campers active throughout the day. There’s always down time, but students will get a break from their phones and tablets by engaging in classroom studies, arts and crafts projects, or outdoor activities.
  • They make new friends. Summer camp is a great way to meet new people, and find new friends. And thanks to modern technology, staying in touch with summer camps friends is easier than ever.
