As a child we are full of imaginations and other worldly fantasies. Kids camps are a place where your child get to live all this. When you were a child yourself, you went to a number of camps and still feel the experience of being there as fresh as yesterday. You want your child to go through the same time and get the experience to remember for life. Let’s explore some reasons and benefits you need to see to send your child to kids’ camps.
Education system and daily routine of our world forces our children to spend most of our time inside our rooms. Camps are a great place where your child is able run, jump, hike, climb, swim and do many other activities that are necessary for his or her physical fitness and health.
Team building activities are something which we need throughout our personal, social and professional lives. Camps provide team building activities where your child learns how to work collectively and overall impact the activity has on the team and its purpose. Regular interaction with new people reduces social phobia in your child and gives him enough confidence to build meaningful relations later in life.
Resilience is a powerful weapon that acts as a shield against biggest of problems in life. Children have a nature to never stop at anything unless they get the work done. Specific activities like ropes course are extremely difficult that rarely anyone can complete in the first go. The repeated failure tends the child go for it again until they succeed. With time their confidence grows and hence, accomplishment becomes inevitable.
The tendency of effective and positive decision making is not that can be learned through any TV show or movies. With regular counselling and guidance camps help your child to go through the decision making process and how to master it especially in tough and stressful times.
Your child has a room full of toys, a safe three tire bicycle to ride in your lawn, etc. As a parent it is obvious we are concerned with our children safety but these are things which makes them stick in their comfort zone. Camps gives a chance to do something creative or out of ordinary. Climbing the ropes, cooking, sleeping in a cabin, are not something your child gets a chance or would ask to do every day. The independence to do these types of strict things alone builds their character, confidence, courage and determination that allows them to go headfirst into the obstacles life has to offer.
6.Say ‘no’ to Technology
As a parent our busy lives forces us to put our child in use of technology so that we can stay in touch while in office or they can pass their free time playing with gadgets. The camping experience asks to keep away techy things and lets your child to interact with real life and real people. Activities that involve physical participation makes your child less reliant on technology and do something more meaningful with their lives.
