10 Benefits of Summer Camp

As 14 million children across the nation head off to day and overnight camps this summer, they’ll return home with more than just cute camp t-shirts. The summer camp experience can give kids an advantage in school and in life.

Ready for Overnight Camp?

Summer camp can be a lot of fun, especially if you are prepared! Involve your child in the packing process and begin packing several weeks in advance to avoid last minute shopping trips. Although it will probably take a while, label all items going to camp with your child’s name. Certainly, your child’s camp will send a packing list, but you can expect some of the following essentials to be on it.

Spiritual Growth at Camp

Kids grow overnight, and we do our best to facilitate what goes into their bodies. On top of that, we have to make sure they stay busy. Soccer games, piano lessons and, no, it doesn’t just stop because school’s out. Summer camp can provide a great opportunity to learn a new skill, make friends, have tons of fun—and also be a great place to grow your child spiritually.
