Camps are included in the curriculum of schools, and in few schools, it is even made compulsory to attend the camp. But the fact is different; it is only the parents who would take the decision of whether their children will attend the camp or not.
TO be honest, camps are a wonderful opportunity for your children for developing new skills, interests and friendships. But many parents think that their children will be in more anxiety if sent to camps.
Some of the worries of parents are as follows:
- Their children might not sleep properly
- Their children mightn’t like the food provided to them
- Their children wouldn’t enjoy the activities of the camp
- Their children might feel homesick
- With whom their children will share their accommodation or room
Though the worries aren’t baseless, still the parents should have positive thoughts going for summer camps in New England or any other camps:
- Social Skills: Your children can develop a lot of social skills. Team works are done in a camp through which talking to others are a must, and so new friendships will get built. The children not only will have good friendships with other children but also, they will develop a good relationship with their teachers in the camp.
- Independent Skills: Going to a camp means that your children are away from the family for a few There would be no one to tell them to brush their teeth, eat vegetables, or have a shower. So, kids will grow up by knowing how to take care of their needs by themselves.
- Decision Making: Children will have to make choices for themselves. The supervisors in the camp won’t keep an eye over the shoulders of each child. They have to decide themselves that should they go with their friends or do an activity, etc.
