Kids Make New Friends at Camp
Kids sometimes just have a few friends in their school and neighborhood. It is also good to just expand their trusted group of friends so they have more face to face friend options. The day to day routines sometimes don’t allow for kids to find and make new friends. A recent ACA study shows that ninety six percent of campers say that camp helped me make new friends. The hustle back and forth to school each day and homework don’t make it easy or allow time to make new friends. Camp introduces kids to new children. They meet new friends in camp through camp events and teamwork and just old fashioned fun. In camp, kids can have the chance to select and have fun with the friends they can pick. These friendships can last a lifetime and help kids to have different friends while they grow up and reach new levels in their life and age. Trusted friendships can help kids get through tough times growing up.
Kids Gain Self-Confidence at Camp
If children have high confidence, camp usually raises it. Most of the time kids need to gain more self-confidence. Camp also brings confidence with compassion as children will interact longer and have more time to be involved, without deadlines and scores to make your kids gain confidence through more time and experience with activities. Camp isn’t about grades and scores. Seventy percent of parents say that their child gained self-confidence at camp. Camp can build self-confidence through fun events with others or groups. It can be as simple as having time to climb a rope higher, better than ever before or for the first time. It can be confidence gained in thought that is learned about animals in nature. It can come from hitting the game winning pitch or assisting a good kick. Camp can bring more confidence in just pure accomplishing of a new fun task, not all grades or scores can come from just a satisfying accomplishment. Camp self-confidence helps build a child’s future to be more confident about choices and themselves, they will have that experience going forward.
Camp Helps Children Know Other Children That Are Different From Them
In the adult world, people work and interact with many people that are diverse and different from a kid’s upbringing and neighborhood. It is important to be exposed and know how to get along with many types of people. Camp allows kids to interact with many children that are not just like them. Ninety two percent of campers say camp helped them to know kids who are different from them. Camp naturally helps kids develop diverse background friendships and interactions. This can help them when they get back to school when working in groups.
Kids Disconnect From Technology
Well this one is easy. Children at camp have other activities than technology. When a day could be filled sitting at home watching TV, playing video games for hours, and eyes glued to their tablet, computer or cell phone; camp gets kids off the technology screen. Children will see there are other activities than technology and cell phones at Beacon Hill School Hollywood campus summer camp. Technology is a great thing but there are some other activities that don’t use technology in the adult life. Sitting and talking person to person in a company group or company brainstorm meeting is usually done without technology. Skills outside of technology are needed to assist in a daily work day. Camp can help kids naturally develop thought and mind skills and assist them in their future adult life when technology is not an option. Thinking on one’s own and discussing in a group at camp without technology as a primary source will help develop children’s minds even more.
