Remember when summer vacation was a chance for all school-aged children to leave the confines of the classroom or living room and spend endless hours outside? Well, one way your parents may have encouraged this is by sending you to a sports or adventure camp. You enjoyed it because you were outdoors but there are countless other benefits to these camps that will help kids thrive in social settings, stay healthy and most importantly have fun.
For parents making the decision to send kids away to sleep away camp this summer, the idea may be frightening for both parents and the kids. But with an ever increasing number of families making the leap of faith to explore this other summer camp option, your family may find that sleep away programs can be beneficial for kids of all ages.
