My experience with camps started many years ago when, at a very young age, I was sent to a camp for two weeks. Since then camps have been a big part of my life. I continued to go to summer camps until I was old enough to become a camp monitor myself! I am now a teacher and watching my class I have come to understand how all the experiences you have at Summer Camps help you grow as a child.

Fun and Much More!
Having fun is not our only priority. Nowadays kids usually lack autonomy due to growing up in a world where there is a tendency to overprotect children. By sending them to camp, you are giving them an opportunity to grow as a person, they come to understand that they are responsible for their own space and actions. At camp, children can learn in a safe and caring environment, taking steps towards independence and realising the achievements they can make alone.
The magic of camps doesn’t end there. Children learn many life skills, negotiation, compromise and co-existence within a group. By nature children are self-centred, and camp is the place where they are taught to be group-centred. They learn to balance the needs of individuals and the group, and to be helpful citizens.
