Allowing your kids to explore and experience new things is crucial for their early childhood education and development. As such, we encourage parents to send their kids to a summer camp program. Camps offer a unique venue for children to grow by participating in a variety of activities to develop their social, emotional, and cognitive skills.
Here are some of the benefits you can expect your children to gain as a result of attending a summer camp program:
- Promotes independence
Camps gives children the opportunity to be more self-reliant since they won’t have their parents to tell them what to do.
- Nurtures friendship
Kids get to meet and bond with other children who share similar interests and hobbies. Camps are the perfect place to build their social skills and build rewarding friendships.
- Improves teamwork and cooperation
From building a campfire to preparing meals, campers are encouraged to work together with their friends to accomplish their goals. Knowing how to work in a team is a useful life skill.
- Helps kids unplug
One of the best things about summer camp is the chance for kids to engage in physical activities, instead of spending too much time in front of a screen.
- Keeps kids learning
Camp programs help keep kids intellectually engaged in a fun and exciting way. Here at Norbeck Montessori, a preschool in Maryland, our students can participate in arts and crafts, group activities, sports, games, and so much more!
