3 must haves for every summer camp

With the world sparing no effort to stress the kids out today, the need to get away from home, school, studies, and exams is more than ever. Summer camp is that one place, which besides giving kids the opportunity to experience and discover new things and have fun like never before, provides one of those "mountain top" experiences in life that one never really forgets.

Yes, summer camp is more than just silly summer fun! It's here where children learn to express themselves across a wad of creative workshops on varied subjects like visual arts, dance, theater, writing, media literacy, nature education, and lots more. Hence, it's important to pick your child's camp with great care. Camp Navigator experts offer some important pointers when looking for the right summer camp for your child.

An enriching physical activity program is the number one thing to look for. A camp must have a diverse schedule of activities that challenge kids in different ways, especially for younger kids who have shorter attention spans.
Academics must also feature on the list of must-haves. But learning doesn’t always have to feel like school. Summer camp learning is meant to be fun and recreational. Most camps creatively bring learning into their programs. For example, using the STEM curriculum to connect kids with the outdoor environment is a fun and educational  way to academically polish up the campers.
Finally, it is important for kids to have a positive social experience at the camp. Avoid packing off your kids with a bunch of friends to a camp. It’s better to send them alone so that they can start on a clean slate, meet other kids and forge friendships.

All these elements make for an enriching and formative experience for the kids at a camp. A good camp us where they  develop social, emotional and academic skills that schools don’t teach most of the times.
