The summer camps are a truly enriching experience for kids, teenagers, children, and also for young people. As far as possible, if you can afford it economically, do not hesitate and send them, they will thank you for life.
In this article we will explain the importance of this and expose the mistakes that must be avoided in relation to this topic:
3 Mistakes to avoid by choosing a summer camp
1. Thinking it is too early or too late to send your children to a camp
A study by the USA Camp Association of New England shows that children usually join a camp for the first time when they are 8 or 9 years old.
This could be the case with your child already, or maybe not. It is important that you, father or mother, ask the following questions:
1) Is my son comfortable with the idea of being away from home?
2) When my son goes to sleep with friends, is he happy or homesick?
3) Is my son independent?
It is best to ask the camp organizers and ask them for some advice! However, do not wait too long: the more your child grows, the more difficult it will be for him to adapt to difficult situations.
2. Choose what is the best option for the children in summer without taking into account their needs.
It is important to listen to your child’s needs, in order to better understand what is the best camp idea for him?
3. Enroll your child with a friend or not enroll him
Do not be afraid to send your children alone to a summer camp! During the long term, it will be easier to face the challenges of a new environment, by itself. In addition, you will have the opportunity to meet and talk with people of various nationalities!
