With the end of the school year fast approaching, many parents and caregivers are searching for ways to keep their children physically active, learning, and having fun during the summer break. Ongoing research supports the importance of quality summer camp programs and how they can promote a healthy lifestyle. In fact, it’s stated that high-quality summer learning programs are not only fun, they even help boost student achievement!
How to Choose a Summer Program for Kids
While it’s important to choose a program your child will enjoy, it’s also important to find a program that will help keep your child active, involved, and challenged. Look for a fun and imaginative camp program that includes both physical and educational activities for kids that will challenge their imagination and develop their self-confidence. Summer Camp programs at child-centered facilities like The Little Gym offer high quality, age-appropriate, interest-driven summer programs designed to help children learn new skills and build self-confidence as they master challenges.
Choosing the right summer or sports camp can make a real difference in how well your child is able to transition from the summer break into the new school year. While the summer break should offer families a chance to relax without the constant pressure of school, homework, and after-school schedules, it’s important to offer children alternatives to screen time, and other passive activities. Summer camps for kids can provide an opportunity to unplug as they explore their own creativity and build independence in a safe, secure environment.
