Benefits of Summer Camp

Summer camp is such wonderful experience that I strongly believe everyone should have! I have learned so many things from summer camp and established so many values from summer camp as well. Summer camp provides children with opportunities for personal growth, building self esteem, and teaching teamwork.

At most summer camps children are able to grown personally by being pushed out of their comfort zone to try new things that they wouldn’t have access to on a regular day at home and facilities to help children push themselves. Children are able to build their self esteem at summer camp because it provides a safe place for children to be themselves and be confident in their own skin without the school drama. While children should feel this way everywhere, it is common that most children stay in their shell at school with the fear of being judged by their peers. Summer camp also teaches teamwork similar to being a team because most activities at summer camp are group organized and rely on group efforts to complete.
