It’s easy for most parents to recognize the positive aspects of summer camp. The unique experience welcomes exciting opportunities for children to de-stress from the academic year, engaging with peers in a fun and supportive environment. Unlike the rigors of school, summer camp invites exposure to new experiences, trips, activities, sports and more. Housing a different population from school, summer camp connects children with new friendships, providing invaluable social opportunities. Families realize the advantages, too: summer camp fosters personal time for spouses and quality time spent between parents and their other children.
