What is a summer day camp, to a young person? If you’re an inner city dweller, it’s a center possibly in the local school yard playing city games on the concrete school yards or table tennis and basketball (indoors or outdoors) and stickball or handball. The fantasy of that city child is to have a day camp they can go to, with trees, grass, lakes, wooden cabins, picnic grounds and other such non-every day amenities that kids in the country kids have. The country kids have their backyards and woods that they can explore but sometimes envy the city kids for their culture and what they consider their city cool attitude.
So what is the right way to satisfy that young person living in your life, in the country? I would say a day camp to get them out of the house away from the electronics and that provides activities that can have them interact with their peers in their own age groups and gender.
Expand their personal relationships and exposure to other children with diversified backgrounds and develop self discipline, enhance their education and expand their inter-personal skills. A well established Summer Day Camp in your area has this type of basis to build upon; it should have a reputation of experience and also extend its reputation for serving the local and surrounding community with its needs. It should provide the young person with a list of physical activity to challenge and improve the young person’s physical abilities.
This type of activity should be fun for the young person also. Activities like canoeing, swimming, and water skiing are some of the activities that help develop individual awareness, as well as teamwork. Team sports like soccer, baseball and other strong team building activities should be offered as well.
Friendships and life long memories will be made. If you as parents both work consider a established, quality day camp for your children that’s convenient or nearby and has a good reputation. Summer Day Camp represents more than just a summer experience, but rather a lifetime of memories. Kids attending Summer Day Camp will enjoy a wonderful experience. Summer Day Camp will provide your child a wide range of both new skills and practical knowledge and enrich their lives, and supplement their year round academic school skills with complementary activities focused on physical fitness, art, music, culture, nature and other productive forms of creativity.
