How Can Summer Camp Positively Impact Children?

Once school winds down for the summer, it's easy to allow your children to run a bit wild. Without the structure and rhythm that the school week brings, it can be difficult to keep things in order while also maintaining your child's passion for learning. Thankfully, sending your child to summer camp can have some tremendous benefits to their growth, both socially and academically. Here are just a few of the ways in which summer camp has an impact on your child.

More Opportunities to Form Meaningful Friendships

Whether you have chosen to send your child to a private elementary school or to a public school, there's no denying that the quality of your child's social connections and friendships is paramount to both their academic and social development. When you give your child space to meet new people, you are also giving them the best chances of succeeding in nearly every aspect of life. This is perhaps most evident in summer camps, summer arts programs, and other extracurricular activities that provide a backdrop for children to form new relationships amongst one another. With access to summer arts programs, camp activities, and friendly competition, you can rest assured that your child will be encouraged to continue to build friendships throughout the entire year, not just when school is in session.

Programs That Could Deepen or Spark New Passions

Whether you are aware of the different aspects of a private school curriculum or not, there's no denying the value that a summer arts program can bring to students of all different talents, interests, and abilities. Often, summer arts programs can be even more beneficial for certain personality types. Because of the change in context (a summer camp rather than a school classroom), many students feel free to openly pursue their interests in a place that is safe, encouraging, and comfortable. Summer arts programs also serve to bring new templates and ideas for presenting arts educations. These factors only contribute to the benefits of summer camp.

A Continuing Learning Process

According to the Condition of Education 2016 report, in the 2013-14 school year, 4.1 million students were enrolled in private school from pre-kindergarten to eighth grade. With all those students, we know that one of the greatest dangers of the summer break is that children tend to lose interest in academic subjects that they may otherwise be passionate about throughout the school year. The long summer days of playing outside and making new friends can make it quite easy for students of all kinds to simply lose interest in the learning process. Whether they simply forget how much they enjoy a subject or if they build bad habits, it's all too common for the summer break to wreak havoc on a student's overall progress in school. This is why summer camp is valuable.
